    when i was 12 i didnt kno any of this. these sure r smart kids. but all i kno is, if i was 12 and in there, id be getting tired. too much thinking involved in their presentation. just let them relax and enjoy.

    @balaholicVC15 :

    What about the 3rd kind of person? Sadly, "10" in binary is generally equivalent to 3….

    @yesthatguyz No, 11 is 3. 0 is 0, 1 is 1, 10 is 2, 11 is 3, 100 is 4, etc.

    I wish I had this when I was a kid. This group of kids are the luckiest sons of.. ever. Honestly, this is probably the best education a kid could get if he wants to have a job when he grows up.

    excellent. If I learnt these simple concepts in A-Level Computer Science before starting the course I would have been able to digest the subject more easily.

    I am a computer scientist, if I ever had this kind of introduction to CS when I was a kid, I would've instantly known that CS is what I wanted to study in college.

    I don't get it: you say you study computer science and you really didn't realize that he added parity bits to the last row/column?

    If and when you become computer scientist, you'll understand that computer science is about principles, not about using computers. That's what the "CS Unplugged" project is about. Check these guys' web site: it's a great resource for teachers in elementary schools and its aim is to move CS in schools beyond teaching how to use Word and write emails.

    The example at 56 minutes fails because there is now way to know if it really was cathlyn who put on a new lock and sent it back. It could have been someone in between.

    Yup, it's vulnerable to a classic man-in-the-middle attack. Sometimes students come up with this, which is great as the goal is to get them thinking about CS.
