One approach to getting text onto a micro:bit, using Morse code...

Key in Morse using button A. To get the text displayed, hold button B and tap A.
At the moment, this only does one word at a time, and the timings are set very slow, as I’m not particularly good at Morse code! Video demo of this on YouTube. There’s plenty of scope for improvement…
The was inspired by, and borrows code from, the Raspberry Pi Morse code worksheet.
The repo on github includes a refactored, commented version of the code by Nicholas Tollervey and a network version, allowing a couple of micro:bits to send and receive Morse via wires between pins 1 and 2: see this video.
Duration: A few hours from scratch?
Teaches: input, encoding, binary representations, Python, BBC micro:bit
