Summer Cryptography Beginners Academy (Learn and Apply)

SUNY SCCC’s Division of Math, Science, Technology and Health (MSTH) and the College in the High School Program are pleased to invite high school students to our Summer Cryptography and Cipher Tools Academy. Cryptography is important in our modern technological society, not only to diplomats and military personnel, but also to ordinary citizens, as they use computers and cellphones to share information through the Internet while shopping, banking or just communicating with friends. Learning about cryptography makes you aware of basic notions of encryption, helps you prepare for jobs in STEM fields in which data security is important, and makes you aware of cryptography as a career choice. This course will be taught by Dr. Lorena Harris, the Director of the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP). She is also an Adjunct teaching in the MSTH Division.
