This workshop series is recommended for teachers and others who want to use the middle-grade CryptoClub curriculum to teach cryptography and mathematics in afterschool and enrichment programs. CryptoClub leaders need not be mathematics teachers—just enthusiastic about math. No prior cryptography experience is required.

Part 1   Dec. 8-9, 2017

Learn basic ciphers, games and activities to get a CryptoClub program started at your school or afterschool program.

Part 2   Feb. 24, 2018

Return to learn the second half of the program and to share your experiences with other club leaders.


The cost for the two-part series is $100.00, which includes meals and the CryptoClub Cipher Handbook and Leader Manual.

Note: The cost to implement the CryptoClub curriculum typically includes $12 per student book (purchased separately).
