the world of electronics was once dominated by analogue signals—that is, signals that represent a continuous range of values. In digital circuitry however, we have only two states: on and off, commonly referred to as 1's and 0's. Digital information has its roots back in the Victorian era thanks to George Boole, who developed the entire concept of Boolean algebra.
The basics of digital electronics involves learning about logic gates, semiconductors, microprocessors and advanced electronic components. A digital signal has two or more distinguishable waveforms; high voltage and low voltages, each of which can be mapped into a digit.

According to renowned computer scientist, Jeannette M. Wing, computational thinking skill is the most in-demand skill in the age of information. Computational thinking allows us to problem-solve and think like a computer scientist. more
Programming at Early Ages
Educators agree that the best age to learn a skill like math or language is ages 5 - 11 years old. Similarly, children need to start learning coding at an early age to build a deeper foundation for their future. more
MIT App Inventor
MIT professor Hal Abelson took the initiative to build a platform to to make app development easy and accessible for people who were non-programmers, even kids. more
Python is one of the most popular programming language in the world right now which has helped create platforms like Facebook and Youtube! And surprisingly it is so simple that kids aged 5 years old can understand it. more

Digital logic as we know it is a logical operation that can be carried out by electrical switching circuits and vacuum tubes. Electrical circuits have been around since the 17th century. BUt it wasn't until the 20th century, that brought with it the invention of vacuum tubes and digital circuits, which made the first electronically programmable computer possible in 1941.
Every aspect of our lives is becoming increasingly integrated and interconnected by the Internet of Things (IoT). Our lives now consist of computers by default and we see all kinds of embedded systems everywhere we go, even in our homes. These devices run and operate on software which has Boolean logic at its core, in conjunction with digital information. The world around us may still be analogue, but with every passing moment, our interaction with the world is becoming more digital and more integrated than the one before it.
