Inspiring Women in Science and Technology!

I have been having a blast with this iPhone App!

You learn about decrypting messages and get to actually decrypt them too! There are messages about 45 different women in Science and Technology to decipher. Once you decipher one, you can move on to the next. There is a great little tutorial as well.

I love this!

I have already solved the ciphers on 14 of them. As Jim and I were talking about it, of course it is a simple substitution cipher, not the more advanced ciphers, but they are lots of fun!

Yeah, if you want to play with a real cipher, you would probably need a doctorate of science degree with a whole lot of math under your belt.....
