“Just 4 Kids” Program April 18th, 2-4 pm
Experience code breaking and censorship firsthand — create a secret code and try to break one, censor photos and decipher phone calls. Learn about World War II’s only unbroken code, explore women’s roles in military censorship and code breaking, and discover how we use codes today. Examine what censorship means to America’s citizens, their rights, privileges and responsibilities.
