CMS students learn about Morse, binary codes

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.
