Cryptography: Sharing Secret Messages

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)

Grades: 9-11

• 1:00 pm Eastern Time (New York Time)

Did you ever wonder why no one else can read your email, listen to your phone calls, or steal money from your bank account? This course teaches students the science behind sharing secret messages. Together we will learn why we sometimes can and sometimes cannot trust that our online data is secure and private. We will even learn how to send each other secret messages through encoding and decoding without needing to use a computer!
