The School of Mathematic's yearly Alan Turing Cryptography Competition finished with a bang on our Cryptography Day event on Wednesday 3rd May 2017. Over 180 students from 27 different schools throughout the UK participated in a day of puzzles and code breaking. The day concluded with an awards ceremony for the overall winners of the Cryptography and MathsBombe competitions 2017 as well as winners of the LIVE competition on the day.  Well done to all those who participated!
