Summer Enrichment Program: Code Breaking: Make and Break Codes


Code Breaking: Make and Break Secret Codes

For students completing grades 5-8

Course Description

Do you like making and breaking codes? Have you ever wondered how messages can be sent on the internet so that they are only readable to the person you sent the message to? In this program we will learn about codes like the Caesar, Vigenere, and Substitution Ciphers. We will learn how ciphers are used to protect your data on the internet. If you like solving puzzles and being able to communicate in secret, you will like this course! This course will be set up in Google Classroom and we will use Zoom for meetings. We will also use the Crypto Club website for games and practice. For those who want to continue the study of code breaking and puzzles, join us for Part II.
