The players discover how computers, unlike humans, sort things and find them again in response to a search command. Try out different ways of sorting with various things from their everyday life and understand the basics of simple search algorithms and a binary code. Who can keep track of everything while searching and sorting and manage to solve the tasks by assigning, comparing, and strategic search sequences, as well as finding the item they are searching for as quickly as a computer?
* first experimentation with various search and sorting algorithms
