Dots and Dashes
Thought that coding began with computers? Think again.
This workshop will transport you back to the 1850s, when the first transatlantic telegraph cable was laid. We'll be using Morse Code to send messages across the ocean. The hard bit is decrypting the code at the other end! If you can crack this first electronic code, you'll be some way to understanding how modern computer code works.
This workshop is ideal for students aged 7+ and is best suited for those in Key Stage 2 and 3 learning. Please note that all under 14's must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
The fee is £12 for workshop participants, whether an adult or a child. Accompanying adults are charged our standard entry fee of £8.
Although the booking is for a specific time slot, entry to the museum is permitted all day. The museum is open from 10am to 5pm.
