Explore the secret world of coding and decoding past and present.  Learn about encryption, decryption, bar codes and ciphers. We will be welcoming Barcoding Inc. who will reveal the secrets of barcoding and teaching us how this common but mysterious code works. Then create your own secret code and deliver messages with invisible ink.

 

We also welcome the National Cryptologic Museum and Dr. David Hatch who will demonstrate the uses of the Enigma Machine used in the twentieth century for enciphering and deciphering messages.

 

At 3pm Dr. Hatch will be presenting his talk Eavesdropping From Hell, on Jewish code breakers of the 1930s. More info HERE.
