During Space’s School’s Out For Summer program I had quite a lot of freedom to try new ideas out with the students. Before I started I was not sure how well they would really engage with slowly clapping letters out. We are so surrounded by games and complex technology I initially thought that doing something so simple could turn out to be a bit boring.
This experiment merges John Steven’s rhythm idea of being in a circle with my binary to ASCII software.
It was interesting to observe once understood they understood the rules of the game students really committed to the idea of coming up with a word together and figuring out how to clap it.
