CryptoClub registration header


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.


Participants will learn how to

  • teach cryptography in fun and engaging ways
  • incorporate middle-school mathematics into the informal learning environment
  • use a variety of games, Internet activities, and stories to engage their students
  • get a CryptoClub program started in their school or afterschool program


There is a $150.00 registration fee.

Participants will receive the CryptoClub Cipher Handbook for use during the workshop and the CryptoClub Leader Manual for use in leading their own Cryptoclubs. Lunch on the first two days will be provided.

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