On Saturday, October 17th, 2020, at the Moise Palace prof. dr. sc. Vedrana Mikulić Crnković and prof. dr. sc. Bojan Crnković gave the lecture on coding for high school students from Cres as part of the “Science Festival”.

To encipher means to convert a text into code using a certain key. The need for encoding has existed since the dawn of civilization. The lecture presented a timeline of encoding, starting with how Caesar used codes, how the Enigma worked, the present-day use of encoding, and what we can expect in the future. The lecture was followed by a scavanger hunt, in search of secret hidden somewhere in the palace, using several encoding and decoding devices.
