February Half Term activities at Bletchley Park
Monday, February 17th
Visit Bletchley Park for some Most Secret activities during the February half term, based on Ones and Zeros!
Did you know that any number can be represented using a code of only ones and zeros?
Take part in games, challenges and crafts which explore how the codebreakers used this to their advantage!
Codebreakers like Bill Tutte and Tommy Flowers realised that showing letters as numbers made some ciphers easier to break. They also explored machines for codemaking and codebreaking, which counted using a number system known as binary.
Have a go at binary bingo, binary dominos, binary patterns, art and jewellery, alongside exploring some of Bill Tutte’s wider problem-solving challenges.
Price: Included with admission
