COMPUTER SCIENCE CODE BREAKERS
St Simon Stock Computer Science Students were recently presented with the opportunity of visiting one of the most renowned computing facilities in England – Bletchley Park. Bletchley Park developed the first large scale code breaking organisation in the world. The intelligence produced at Bletchley Park played a major role in winning World War Two and is considered to have shortened the war by over two years saving many lives.
Our students visited the huts where the code breaking was completed and even saw and touched the infamous enigma machine. Students participated in workshops, in which they broke codes and ciphers, and learned whether they had the skills to be the codebreakers of the future. A great time was had by all!
