Spies, Secret Messages, the Internet, and You!

Presented by: Matt Williams

Have you ever wanted to make a secret message? Unreadable without the key?

This session will show you ways that you can create your own secret messages! Starting with some cyphers from history up to ones used on the internet, you'll learn how people protected secrets yesterday and today.

You'll also learn a little bit about how secret messages can be broken and why it is important to have good passwords to protect your secrets on the internet.

Then you'll practice creating your own secret messages using a variety of methods!

(Supplies for making your own messages will be provided; Secret Decoder Ring not included)
