ALL ABOARD: WE’RE GATHERING STEAM
This week’s area of focus is TECHNOLOGY, and we’re learning how to code with Legos.
In this activity, children get to learn about how coding works and come up with their own secret messages to decode.
- Lego board
- Coding template you can find here
First, you need to decide which two colours you’d like to use to make your secret code. We chose blue and yellow to indicate either a 0 or a 1. Next, use your template to write out your message on the Lego board. Once you have written your code out, have a friend try and figure out the message!
Can you decode our secret message? Use the template to find out!! You can try this with a friend if you need to pass along an important message.
(Answer: Children’s Museum 😉)
Share your secret messages with us on social media @childmuseumwpg. We’d love to try and figure it out!
