Hey kids! Have you ever talked with a friend or family member in a secret code? Have you ever seen a group of strange symbols and wondered what they could mean? Please join the Women in Cybersecurity organization at WPI on April 20 to learn about the exciting world of ciphers and codes. You'll also have a chance to ask the group questions related to their experiences as college students and women in a computing field. !NEHT UOY EES
The children* of our alumni are invited to an exclusive workshop that will engage them in a hands-on computer coding workshop facilitated by our Women in Cybersecurity organization. The one-hour workshop takes place during April vacation week and will be both educational and fun. This program is most appropriate for middle and high school aged students, but can be adapted for younger children.**
This program is free to attend and offered in partnership with WPI’s Office of Pre-Collegiate Outreach Programs. Pre-registration is required. Participants will need a computer and a strong internet connection to participate; pencil and paper are also recommended.
A Zoom account is needed to attend this event. Participants (or their guardians) will be emailed the Zoom event URL to attend the event in advance of the event date. You will receive two confirmation emails upon registration, one of which includes the Zoom link to attend the event.
Registration for this program is provided through Pre-Collegiate Programs’ ACTIVE system, which requires the creation of an account. Opt-out of ACTIVE messages is available. Please note that the automated confirmation emails from ACTIVE may include time and date information not relevant to this program.
