October 2nd in Scarborough: Binary Solo

In collaboration with Paperhouse Outreach Collective, Ones and Zeros will be facilitating a FREE version of our Binary Solo workshop at the Toronto Public Library Cedarbrae branch – with a twist!

We'll discover what the 01100101s of binary *actually mean*, and how computers use them to store and transmit messages for people!

We'll decode a famous "binary solo" from a song, edit some code for Arduino (an electronics platform for interactive projects!), print out our own binary messages with thermal receipt printers, and think critically about the social effects of the assumptions built into early computer systems.

If that sounds like a lot, don't worry! This workshop is geared toward beginners, so you don't need a coding or electronics background to be here :)
