Nothing Else than Computer Science?!? Take a Trip through the Mysterious World of Algorithms and Data
Computer science live! In this module, primary school students are sent on an exciting trip through the world of algorithms and data. The students are offered five different challenges to test their skills in solving puzzles. Furthermore, surprising and interesting solutions of everyday problems are presented.
How can I keep love letters secret during lessons and prevent my teacher from reading them? How can I sort my Pokémon cards so that I will rediscover my favorite ones immediately? How is it possible to „weigh numbers“, and why is this measuring important for computers? How to cope with the problem that you not only want to take all your favorite things with you but also travel around with a fairly light knapsack?
First and foremost – what does all this stuff have to do with computer science and computers?
The answer is waiting for little researchers and explorers to be detected.
Some ideas implemented in this module are partially taken from the project Abenteuer Informatik by Dr Jens Gallenbacher.
