Morse Code

Why is Morse’s code still used today?

We code, send and decode messages and finish the session with a fun competition . . . – – – . . . ?

Morse Code is a KS2 Maths and Coding science workshop We aren’t going to give too much away about this workshop – apart from to tell you its great fun. It gives pupils plenty of opportunity to encode and decode messages, working in teams.

They will learn about how and why to use Morse for messages and why it is so efficient. Learning about Morse’s code in today’s digital age is surprisingly relevant – and not just in aviation and amateur radio.

The simplicity of the morse code as a tool means that it easily crosses international barriers.
