Hands-on Course about Ciphers and Codes

November 3, 2018

Venture behind the scenes of secret messaging and learn how a selection of codes and ciphers work, from those used in ancient fields of battle to an important cryptographic algorithm that forms the basis of many of today’s secure communications systems. You’ll also have the opportunity to get to grips with a real World War Two Enigma machine as part of this full day of activities before dipping a toe into what might happen in the future. The course includes an outdoor tour of the site, and at the end of the day there will be a short amount of time during which to explore the site on your own.

This is a full-day course that is designed for adults with confidence in maths up to GCSE level and an interest in delving a little deeper. It will be accessible to older children who want to find out more about secret communication, but must be accompanied by a paying adult.


£11.00 per person (adults and children over 12)
