Class 4: Using Micro: bit to send messages to a partner across the classroom

We used Micro:bit to send morse code messages to a partner across the classroom. To do this we had to code a program which involved devising a coded string of commands over a specific radio wave (paired with partner). Morse code breaks down characters into a sequences of dots and dashes which works out perfect for the micro:bit equipped with two main buttons. We programmed button A for dots and button B for dashes. Dots are represented by 0 and dashes are represented by 1. We then coded a tick to signal the message was over prior to transmission. It was great fun!
