A logic gate is a simple device that returns some number of outputs. These outputs are determined by a pattern of inputs and rules the gate follows to create a desired result. At their core, gates return either as "true/on" or "false/off". Logic gates are the foundation of not only computational thinking and coding but also apply to electrical engineering and algebraic thinking. In this activity, students create a series of simple logic gates, and then are given an opportunity to apply these gates to create simple contraptions.
