Alan Turing Cryptography Competition 2018 Gallery Now Live
160 students joined us in the Alan Turing Building for a day of Cryptography challenges.
The School of Mathematic's annual Alan Turing Cryptography Competition finished with our Cryptography Day event held on Wednesday 25th April 2018. We invited over 160 students from 22 different schools throughout the UK to visit us in the Alan Turing Building and participate in a day of puzzles and code breaking. The day concluded with an awards ceremony for the overall winners of the 2018 Cryptography and MathsBombe competitions as well as winners of the LIVE competition on the day. Well done to all those who participated!
Head on over to our Flickr Gallery for more images from the day.
