Back in the early 1800s, engineers and scientists were just starting to pioneer electrical communication methods. In 1836, Samuel Morse, Joseph Henry, and Alfred Vail invented the electrical telegraph system. It was the first system that allowed communication over great distances. But, the problem with it was that it could only communicate pulses of electricity to another machine. This meant that you wouldn’t be able to communicate using voice or text. So, a new way of getting messages across was needed. This led Samuel Morse to develop a code that could translate electrical pulses back into the original message. In this activity, the participant will do their own version of coding with patriotic words.
