In this workshop, participants will meet UQ students from the UQ Cyber Squad. Participants will learn about the field of cryptography which is a part of the cyber security area. Participants will work in groups or pairs solving puzzles. Using taught cipher methods and with the help of a key; participants will be asked to decipher secret messages provided by UQ Cyber Squad. Performing an inverse substitution process to extract the original message, students will be able to “crack the code” and hopefully send some decrypted responses back!


This workshop is Free.
