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 and codes, alongside exploring some of Bill Tutte’s wider problem-solving challenges.
