Code Wheels

November 4th 2016- Code Wheels

This week in YA the kids continued their lesson on the Enigma machine and breaking codes by making their own code wheel. This code wheel took a lot of skill and even more patience. Everyone noticed how precise they needed to be for their wheel to work. By using protractors the children were able to make perfect 12 degree angles on an inside and connected outside wheel, creating a sophisticated code system. They finished their code wheels, and finally they decoded an awesome message!
