Alan Turing and the Enigma Machine - LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR

Saturday 18 March: 10:30am - 11:30am

Babbage Lecture Theatre, New Museums Site Downing Street, CB2 3RS

Can we build a machine that can solve any problem? How can we break a code others believe unbreakable? Why do leopards have spots and zebras stripes? These questions were all answered by Alan Turing. Mathematician James Grime explores Turing's childhood fascination with maths and how it led to the breaking of the infamous Enigma cipher. Including a demonstration of an original WWII Enigma Machine!
