Why use a pen and paper to make Pigpen ciphers when you can use a micro:bit? This activity pack introduces the Pigpen Cipher and how to encrypt and decrypt with it.
It will also show you how to use a micro:bit in this process:
– Displaying the Symbols
– micro:bit Radio Signals
What you’ll need:
– Access to microbit.org
This pack is worth 10 points plus what you earn in the quiz.
Here is the activity worksheet you'll need...
In this video, we set up our micro:bit with the symbols we’ll need for our Pigpen Cipher.
This video serves as a quick guide to the Radio block and how we can get micro:bits talking to each other.
