Riding the Waves of Information

Riding the Waves Riding the Waves of Information


In this unit of study, students learn about waves and the properties of amplitude, wavelength, and energy. With these properties, students explore how waves move objects and transmit information for both sound (using Morse code) and light (using binary code). As a final project, students use the codes to unlock a series of locks to break into a mystery box to reveal a surprise.
