AGAM: Discover Cryptography is a camp focused on fostering growth through challenging and rewarding experiences, all designed to help students develop and strengthen their mathematical skills. During the camp, students will take courses about codes and cryptology and mini-courses in a variety of topics, such as aerodynamics, the game of SET, and graph theory. They will be provided support from mathematicians from Nebraska to help them hone their skills, grow their confidence, and explore the vast opportunities that having a strong background in mathematics can offer.

All housing and food are provided for participants throughout the duration of the camp, on UNL East Campus. Space is limited, and camps will fill on a first-come, first-serve basis. The camp is limited to 15 students. A waitlist option will be available. Please see Big Red Summer Academic Camp Sessions for a list of camps offered this year, descriptions, participant limits, costs, and scholarship opportunities:

In 2023, campers will stay on UNL's East Campus and be brought to City Campus for the Discovery Cryptography camp from 8:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The camp schedule includes:
