Event description

Description

In the modern age of information and mass communication, how do governments, companies and people like you and me keep secrets safe? During this workshop you will learn how to build the modern–day equivalent of ancient Roman ciphers, invent your own cryptography and also see how, no matter how good the encryption, you can (almost) always find the secret message.

Please Note: This workshop is strictly for 16–18 year-olds and will include a 45 minute unsupervised lunch break. Students should bring lunch and a drink, pens, pencils and a USB drive if they wish to take their work home.

This workshop is based on an Ri Computer Science 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 summerschools@ri.ac.uk 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.
