Tech Detective: Secret Messages

Unravel the secrets and shadowy arts of cryptography by learning classic techniques such as the Caesar Cipher, brute force attacks, and substitution ciphers, along with practical applications like frequency analysis. This class explores the fundamentals of symmetric key cryptography, uncovering the use of a single key for both encryption and decryption. Dive into advanced topics, including polyalphabetic ciphers, the Pigpen Cipher, transposition ciphers, and understand their role in secure communication. Throughout the class, gain hands-on experience in applying cryptographic principles to real-world scenarios.

Operation: 3D Laser Cutting

Explore the world of CO2 lasers in this hands-on workshop. Join us to master the art of laser design with interactive learning and creative challenges. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the parts of a CO2 Laser, how to operate, calibrate, and diagnose laser cutters, design "laser-friendly" 3D models using Solidworks and AutoCAD to prepare them with Lightburn software, master engraving techniques, optimize images, and cut and engrave designs to create and assemble a personal project to take home. Conclude with an overview of the design-to-print process, post-process laser-cut parts, the assembly of designs, and compete in a thrilling challenge. Showcase your creations on an SUU display pedestal.

Operation: 3D Printing

Master the art of 3D printing with hands-on learning and creative challenges. Understand the components of a 3D printer and how to operate, calibrate, and diagnose the printer. Dive into our hands on 3D modeling by using Solidworks or Fusion 360, tackle design challenges, and explore the preparation of prints with Print Studio or Cura. Prepare models for slicing, and initiate prints on our 3D printers. Cap off the experience with a comprehensive overview of the design-to-print process, post-processing techniques, and a friendly 3D print challenge.
