Cal Poly Science Cafe took a field trip this past Saturday, May 10, to the second annual San Luis Obispo Mini Maker Faire.
Cal Poly Science Cafe brought Pete Hawkes, an interaction designer and artist based in LA, to the faire to teach us about binary code through a dance and arduino-powered device. Makers of all ages participated in the Binary Dance to learn how computers store complex data with 1s and 0s.
What is the benefit of educational games? How do art and computer science interact? And most importantly, what is “the binary dance?”
Pete Hawkes, our Cal Poly Science Cafe guest at the second annual San Luis Obispo Mini Maker Faire on May 10, explains all that and more in this interview.
Kennedy Library will host “Binary Dance,” an interactive gaming experience on stage at Mission Plaza during the second annual San Luis Obispo Mini Maker Faire from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 10.
