Unit 3 – Question 2


What other interesting examples of codes from history or the modern-day (digital or non-digital) can you find to inspire or support a lesson about encoding and decoding messages?

There are two examples of code I find interesting to talk about. The first is the classic form of code we would see in old music boxes, where raised points in a metal cylander would ‘code’ for what sound to come outt o create a sequence building into a song.

The second and more modern example of code I find interesting is code within code found in minecraft. There are blocks called redstone that can be used to activate switches, which people figured out act like code with an on and off state, letting them create primitive computers within the game.
