Spy Month: The Secret Code Machine

Spy Month continues with the Secret Code Machine, a great little Caesar Cipher built in Scratch to help keep your secret messages a secret. https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/185866145/

It was a little tricky at first to work out how it was to function but like I’ve always told my pupils, if they can explain a concept clearly in plain English then building a project is made a great deal easier.

The nice thing about the Secret Code Machine is that you can cut and paste the encoded messages into emails etc to send to people. Works best on laptops or desktop machines.
