I am a teacher, and my students have been enjoying playing through the Escape Room scenarios. Until Nuclear Countdown, that is. The walkthrough at the official website is woefully inadequate. My kids are stuck on the last code. The walkthrough is not much help. Can anyone provide some assistance as to how you find the last code?

It's the sequence with the bomb wires. See below.

We found this puzzle really fun when we played. So basically it is a logic puzzle. The "walkthrough" only has the first step.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
If you decode the morse code, it tells you to never cut wires B and H so right away, you can mark off all the boxes for B and H on the "worksheet". They will never be used. So each quadrant of the "worksheet" corresponds to a part of the bomb. Match the tools on the "worksheet" to the ones on the bomb. If you read the bomb manual in part 1, it will tell you the names of each part of the bomb (detenator, ignitor, etc)write those on the worksheet as well.

The rest is pretty easy if you do it systematically. Read each "rule" and carefully mark off each wire. You will end up with the solution if you do it correctly!
