Callywith College is holding a free public lecture including a full demonstration with the original WWII Enigma Machine – as Dr James Grime illuminates the brilliant mathematical insights and innovative thinking of Alan Turing.
Known as one of the 20th Century’s greatest mathematicians, Turing was a pioneer of computer science who is best remembered for his role in breaking the Enigma, the purportedly unbreakable code used by the German military.
James Grime is a mathematician and public speaker. He can be mostly found touring the UK, and the world, giving talks about the history and mathematics of codes and code breaking. And when not doing that you find him making videos about mathematics for YouTube.
The lecture will take place on Tuesday 6th March, 7pm-8:30pm.
Tickets for the event are available from EnigmaEvent.eventbrite.co.uk
UPDATE: Due to popular demand, tickets for this event have now sold out.
