CGS London Students Visit Bletchley Park
The College of General Studies six-week London summer semester is back for the first time since 2019, and on June 13, these Team B students (students are assigned to teams when they enroll) visited Bletchley Park, the principal center of Allied code-breaking during World War II. The group learned about the contribution of British intelligence agencies, estimated to have shortened the war by two to four years, as well as the impact of Alan Turing, founder of computer science, mathematician, philosopher, and codebreaker, on modern-day computer science. Now owned by the Bletchley Park Trust and open seven days a week as a museum, the 58-acre complex is about 50 miles north of London. Photo by Ziyu (Julian) Zhu (CGS’23)
