Alan Turing Cryptography Day

From teacher of mathematics, Miss Barnett: “On Wednesday, 1st May, Miss Rimmer and I took a number of Year 7 students to the ‘Alan Turing Cryptography Day’ at the University of Manchester. The day involved a live cryptography competition, a lecture from Professor Gavin Brown titled ‘The Robots are NOT coming to kill us!’, a talk from a Data Scientist who works for SkyScanner and a Crypto Team Question Time!
The students were very successful in the competition, mainly competing against older students, but just missed out on winning any prizes this year. They all thoroughly enjoyed the day, and it promoted a lot of mathematical discussion and thoughts amongst the group. They all represented the school outstandingly and look forward to hopefully returning next year.”
