CryptoClub Project is offering a 3-day summer training workshop
The CryptoClub Project of the University of Illinois at Chicago is offering a 3-day summer training workshop for middle-grade teachers and afterschool leaders on June 25-27, 2015.
Cryptography, the science of secret messages, is an intriguing STEM topic and an important application of mathematics.
CryptoClub is a 16-20 hour afterschool curriculum designed to teach cryptography and mathematics to students in grades 6-8. It uses games, treasure hunts, and other informal activities to engage students in learning cryptography and applying middle-school mathematics. The CryptoClub curriculum has been developed and tested with support from the National Science Foundation.
Additional information and an application may be found on our website at: www.math.uic.edu/CryptoClubProject.
Registration priority is given to applicants who have their administrator's approval to conduct a CryptoClub program in 2015-2016.
