AP CSP is watching The Imitation Game, to wrap up our study of encryption with a bow. Lots of the concepts we’ve discussed in class and grappled through on the code.org website are illustrated in this move.
The picture above shows a student who brought up a website with the Enigma machine codified and was playing with it while watching.
The picture below is a student who brought up the dataisbeautiful website to look at the data visualization we had studied that shows each scene of movies based on real life and colors codes the veracity of the scene. Love it so much. These kids are so smart, all I can tell them is it’s “based” on the real story.
In other news, students found out I’m leaving for a new job in mid January. Homemade cookies in every class today to butter them up and assuage my guilt. 🙂
