Secret messages have existed for centuries.
From the use of invisible inks and messages hidden in plain sight to the use of military grade encryption, people have always wanted to hide their secrets. In this special Festival of Creative Learning workshop we will look at exactly how we can do that, with one essential twist: There will be no computers.
So bring your pens and papers, your folding fans and your lemons as we delve into the art of sending and receiving secret messages.
Techniques will include:

Learn more from soft matter physicist, Carmen Morcillo Perez about the physics behind the different crystals that emerge.
