Up for a challenge?

Try out this code breaking challenge for students aged 8-13 years old.

The ponds of wonder: Code Breaker 

Will I need anything to participate?

Some of the challenges will need you to use your mind, others your eyes and ears. It would be a good idea to have the following items with you as you play:

A notebook and pencil – to write down the codes as you solve them.

A printer (optional) – to print out some of the challenge sheets to work out, (sometimes it’s easier to work on a sheet of paper instead of staring at a screen).

Make sure that you have some headphones as some of the challenges will involve you having to listen to some music.

The original competition for prizes has closed but you can still enjoy solving the puzzles and can earn certificates for passing levels.

Have fun! 🙂
