20. Turning code into pictures

We have now seen that we can create a code that allows us to draw a picture. I have thought of a drawing and used code to turn it into letters and numbers, which I have given you. Take note of the letters and numbers and use the code to reconstruct the drawing.

Required material: paper (preferably squared) and a pen.


Try to decode and draw the images I mention at the end of the video.

Here is the image that I had thought of, make it appear on your notebook and on the notebooks of all those who know the code!
