The HOGWORDS School of Cryptography for Young Learners Team Building Activity occurred in Pitesti between 7-14 May 2023. 12 Italian and 10 Romanian pupils passionate about mathematics joined to discover together the basis of cryptography.
Their journey began with a week of team building and introduction to cryptography activities between Pitesti and Bucharest, organized by Imago Mundi. Through different visits, city hunts, presentations, and tasks, the students had the opportunity not only to learn but to express their creativity, taking pictures and creating videos related to the topic. They also had the chance to work on their own codes and then try to find the pattern and break them as an activity between teams.
The KA2 Erasmus+ project is implemented by Confine Mondo Cultural Association (Italy) and Imago Mundi Association (Romania) in partnership with the National Research Council of Italy (IAC:CNR), teachers from Sapienza University in Rome and students from Colegiul National “Ion C. Bratianu” Pitesti and Colegiul Național Alexandru Odobescu of Pitesti and the following Italian scientific high schools: S. Cannizzaro, A. Avogadro, A. Righi, Plinio Seniore, C. Cavour of Rome, Gregorio da Catino of Poggio Mirteto (RM) and G. Galilei of Pescara. The project provides local, online as well as international activities.
