Summer Schools for High School Students

I organized some courses in summer schools for high school students at ETHZ and TU Darmstadt. The summer schools aim at students aged between 14 and 19 who are particulary interested in mathematics.

In 2022, together with Alessandro Lägeler and Patrick Amrein we organized a course on Cryptography and Number Theory in the an annual Studienwoche at ETHZ. We discussed some classical encryption schemes such as the Caesar Cipher and how they can be broken, but also the RSA algorithm and its number theoretical foundations.

Turing Machine

In 2018, Julian Bitterlich and I gave a course on Computability Theory during a summer school for high school students at the TU Darmstadt. The summer school has been organized annually since 2014 by Anna von Pippich and Fabian Völz. In addition to three lectures on the basics of the theory of computation we built a real life Turing machine together with the seven students attending our course. The machine was inspired by the original Turing machine by Jeroen van den Bos and Davy Landman, which they built for an exhibition in celebration of the Alan Touring Year 2012.

In 2016, Fabian Völz and I supervised a course on The Oddities of Infinity in the annual summer school organized by Anna von Pippich and Fabian Völz at TU Darmstadt.
