2021 Summer Program

You are receiving this message because we believe you possess skills that may be beneficial to our employers. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to help us uncover a conspiracy at an undisclosed location we've been monitoring.

We will teach you the basics of codes and ciphers: how they can hide secrets, and how those secrets can be revealed. You will practice your decryption skills by tackling a series of challenges, and learn to encode messages using your own Wadsworth cipher machine. Then, you will join a team of other elite agents to remotely hack into our target and extract information. And who knows, maybe you will need to use your expertise to develop your own cipher.

Do you accept this mission?
