6/30/2024 | Students will study the famous ciphers of the past: the Polybius cipher, Caesar cipher, pigpen cipher, etc. [Show less] |

7/7/2024 | Students will continue their study of ciphers: anagrams, pigpen ciphers, and rail fence ciphers. [Show less] |

7/14/2024 | Students will be introduced to the concept of polygons, 2D and 3D objects, and projections. [Show less] |
