Codes and Communications

Workshop Information

Join us on an exciting journey into the world of communication with our latest STEM workshop – "Signals & Symbols: Decoding the Past!" Perfectly tailored for young minds aged 3-5 and 6-12, this interactive experience explores the fascinating realms of Morse code and semaphore. For our youngest participants (2-3 years old), the workshop is a playful introduction to the magic of communication. Through engaging activities, children will discover the joy of expressing themselves using simple signals and symbols, setting the foundation for future language exploration and maybe dabble with some basic semaphore signals (aeroplane signalling). Older participants (6-12 years old) will dive deeper into the historical methods of communication with hands-on lessons in Morse code and semaphore. From deciphering secret messages to mastering the art of flag signalling, children will uncover the ingenious ways people communicated in the past. Beyond the educational aspect, our workshop fosters teamwork, problem-solving, and creativity. In a supportive environment, children will collaborate to crack codes and send messages, building essential communication skills that will last a lifetime. The workshop not only imparts knowledge but also encourages teamwork, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.
