Cracking the Code

All students will be working in pairs or small groups throughout all 4 sessions.

Students will create and problem solve their way through a series of fun, hands-on projects. Delve into Cryptography and learn why secret codes were so important from ancient times through today. Discover how a padlock works and make a working one from simple materials! Learn to code Makey-Makey’s and Arduino’s to communicate with light & sound. Then put your newfound skills to the test using what you built and design a puzzling challenge for your classmates to complete!
