Decipher a message

Important part of the Escape room is collecting the clues and deciphering them. Deciphering is the process of interpreting or decoding coded or encrypted information to understand its meaning or content.

To practice that, use the code table below to decipher 2 messages generated on micro:bit simulator.

When button A is pressed, micro:bit simulator displays a sequence of 5 signs.

When button B is pressed, micro:bit simulator displays a sequence of 7 signs.

Write the deciphered codes in boxes below:

Sequence of 5:

Sequence of 7:

Now you have a sequence of letters, an anagram, that you want to transform into actual word. An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of another word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once.

Here are some tips on how to solve anagrams:

  • Identify common prefixes and suffixes: Look for common word parts that appear at the beginning or end of words, as they can provide clues to potential solutions.
  • Focus on vowels and consonants: Start by identifying and placing vowels, as they often form the core of words. Then, consider the remaining consonants to complete the word.
  • Experiment with rearranging letters: Try rearranging the letters in different orders to form new combinations. Sometimes a small change in arrangement can reveal a valid word.
