Summer Schools: Code breaking challenge (age 13–15)
Tue 22 August 2017, 10:30 – 15:30 BST
Cryptography is the use of codes and ciphers to protect secrets, often of political or military importance. In this session, students will learn how to decode messages encoded with different ciphers and codes, including the Caesar cipher and the transposition cipher. This will be run as a competition, with teams of students working against the clock to crack secret messages before their opponents.
Please note: This workshop is strictly for 13–15 year-olds and will include a 45 minute supervised lunch break. Students will not be able to leave the building at lunch time unless permission is given at the time of booking. Students should bring lunch and a drink, pens, pencils and a calculator.
This workshop is based on an Ri Mathematics Masterclass. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
