Codebreaking Workshop

It's 1940 and the country is at war.

Germany have invaded Poland, France, Holland & Belgium and we have had word that they are about to launch Operation Sea Lion, the invasion of Great Britain.

We’ve intercepted enemy radio signals and sent them to Bletchley Park, home of our country's codebreakers.

These messages have been coded using German Enigma machines and need to be deciphered and sent to our military command as soon as possible.

It’s now your job to sign the Official Secrets Act and go to work in one of the huts at Bletchley Park. Learn how the brilliant minds tasked with codebreaking during World War Two helped us to victory and gave birth to modern computing.

Our facilitators bring all equipment to engage and involve the whole class. Can you crack the Enigma Code?
