The CryptoClub Project is offering a 2-day Summer Training Workshop for middle-grade teachers and afterschool educators at the University of Chicago, July 24-July 25.
Participants will be introduced to the CryptoClub curriculum, which teaches cryptography and mathematics to middle-grade students. CryptoClub uses games and other informal activities to engage students in exploring these important STEM topics. It is adaptable to a variety of settings. Teachers have used it in their mathematics, technology, and elective classes, and in before- and after-school clubs. Others have used it in informal settings such as libraries, Boys and Girls clubs, 4-H programs, and YMCAs.
More information about CryptoClub can be found on the CryptoClub Project website. A three-minute video on the site shows the program in action.
Registration fees are $100 for the CryptoClub Leader-Training Workshop, including leader materials and meals during the workshop. The workshop is partially funded by the National Science Foundation.
NOTE: The cost to implement the CryptoClub curriculum typically includes $12 per student book.
Workshop registration is now open.
