Description

Encryption Decryption

9:00am - 10am AEST on Tuesday 12th of September

Students will explore the history of using mathematics to hide information, from Julius Caesar to modern computer science. They will investigate how encrypting information keeps their information safe every day, how they can use maths and language to break decipher encryptions from their friends in class, and how Alan Turing saved lives by breaking the Enigma Code in World War II.
