Codes and Code Breaking - August 1-4, 2022

Academic Camps
Marywood CNHS126-Comerford theater
Monday, Aug 1, 2022 at 9:00 AM (ET) to Thursday, Aug 4, 2022 at 12:00 PM (ET)

Algorithms for encrypting and decrypting messages have been used since the time of Julius Caesar, who used them to transmit secrets during the Gallic Wars. Since that time, not only the military, but any person or organization that conducts financial business over insecure communication lines needs to employ complex encryption techniques. This camp will introduce students to cryptology, the study of encryption and decryption techniques that are in common use today. Cryptology is used by specialists in Information Security, a highly lucrative and fulfilling career and one in great demand today. And when the week is over, you will leave with your own program to write your own secret messages!

This is available to High School students enrolled in AP or Honors mathematics courses. This would include rising juniors and seniors at local high schools.

Camp Fee: $75
