Educator Resources for Logic Gates

Microchips and motherboards... bits and binary code... You may have heard these terms when researching how a computer works. But, did you ever wonder how digital devices use them to process information? Or what's really going on deep inside electronic circuits? Find out in this BrainPOP movie, as Tim and Moby teach you about logic gates, the basic building blocks of all digital circuitry. Discover how computers use electricity to encode and transmit information. You'll also see the seven different logic gates in action and learn how they use binary code to load apps and run programs. Logic gates might seem like simple electric switches at first, but these microscopic mathematical powerhouses are the driving force inside every piece of technology we use, from laptops to laundry machines.
