Campbellsville Middle School fourth-graders recently learned about different types of codes people use to communicate.
Students in Samantha Coomer’s science class are learning about Morse code and binary code.
They watched a video of a man who was being interviewed, but used his eyes to blink a message for help in Morse code.
Students also watched a video about binary code, which is a system of using 1s and 0s to create a pattern that can be interpreted by a computer.
As an exercise, Coomer’s students deciphered binary code to reveal words.
They also wrote their own binary codes and worked in pairs to decipher them.
CMS fourth-grader Zhi Chen deciphers a binary code to reveal the word “apples.”
CMS fourth-grade teacher Samantha Coomer helps Austin Gabbert decipher his binary code.
CMS fourth-grader Keeley Dicken deciphers a binary code to reveal the word “boots.”
