Imitation Game

The Alan Turing Cryptography Competition 2015 starts today! If you’re interested in taking part but have not registered, please see Mr Evans.

Do you like breaking codes and solving ciphers?

Can you, and your friends, unravel the Carbon Conundrum?

Would you like to use your mathematical skills to win some great prizes?

The University of Manchester are once again running the Alan Turing Cryptography Competition


competition is open to pupils up to and including Year 11. You and your friends can take part as a team of up to 4 people.

There’s still the same great prizes (including spot prizes, prizes for the first
team to solve each code, and prizes for the overall winners). The team notepad
and the forum will also be back so you can chat to the other codebreaking teams
across the country. The competition will start on Monday 26th January. Like last
year there are six codes in total, and the first three codes will come out weekly.

Furthermore, on Wednesday 29th April there will be the second ‘Alan Turing
Cryptography Day’ in the School of Maths at the University of Manchester. There
will be a live cryptography competition, some other crypto-related events, and
the prize ceremony. Further details will be on the website soon.
