Cipher Space

Learn about the importance of security in computer science, what it takes to encode and decipher data, and how to create your own cipher wheel!

Today, we use similar modes of encryption to keep vast amounts of personal and confidential information safe. As we use technology to communicate over the internet via satellites, it’s important to control and protect private information. Private information in the wrong hands can have serious, negative consequences!

Do you want to race against the clock to protect a satellite from a cyber attack? Use a high-tech AR Experience (mobile only) to help stop the hackers, and save the day.

You can also purchase the full Galactic Quest STEM Challenge Kit or standalone Cipher Wheel Activity from Shop 4-H.
