Data can be pictures, videos, text, numbers and much more. Data that’s used by the computer isn’t stored as words. It’s stored as a series of numbers - all ones and zeros, or binary numbers. A number system that uses only two digits is called binary.

In computer data, each number, letter, and symbol is represented by a certain set of ones and zeros. This is called binary code. Computer code is made up of binary code.

The smallest unit of data in computers is called a bit. A bit is often represented as either one or zero, on or off.

You can make a binary code version of your name.
Or, can you try making another binary picture?
