PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL

‘Codes & Ciphers’ is the second in a new series of events which we have introduced this year. Our intention is that ‘ISSP 7-8’ is a termly event for years 7 & 8 running from 7 to 8pm where high profile speakers will enthuse and inspire children through a 1 hour lecture. We are delighted that Thomas Briggs from Bletchley Park is coming to lead a talk for us called ‘Codes and Ciphers’.

This will be a session offering a whistle stop tour of encryption methods used throughout history, beginning with simple encryption techniques, dipping into some of the mathematics behind making ciphers more secure, and ending with a hands-on demonstration of a real, working Enigma machine.
