"Inspiring the Next Next Generation of Hackers"

Want to get started in the world of hacking but don’t know how? How do  you inspire your kids to begin looking at things like a hacker? When  should you start? What should you do? Eleven-year-old old hacker  BiaSciLab and 14-year-old Kousei will answer these questions and more as  they set adults at ease with bringing their kids into the hacker world.  They will explain how they started their journeys, where they are  planning to go, and how to get there. This talk will also have lots of  great tips for adults starting out too.

Sending ciphered messages to your friends that the teacher can’t figure out!

This kid friendly lab and talk starts with a quick history of ciphers. Covering the classic substitution cyphers and why they are poor choices for messaging. Then moving into some simple methods to create complex ciphers. It ends with constructing a Pringles Enigma or Paper Enigma that the participants get to take home!

Note: Some math will be happening, so bring your smartphones or calculators!
