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
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.
