Event Details

In this workshop with Tom Briggs, students will learn about different codes and ciphers that have been used throughout history, as well as some of the methods used to break them. Students will work their way up from early military ciphers like Caesar shift until they end up at one of the most famous ciphers of all: Enigma. They will get the chance to interact with a real, working World War II Enigma machine–and then make their own to take home.

 

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.

Mathematics Summer School workshops are based on Ri Masterclasses. 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.
