Over the weekend of May 20th to 22nd a group of modern codebreakers were called on by Good For Nothing to help build useful stuff to help Bletchley Park celebrate its amazing past and create an exciting new future. Check-out some of the details below of their Bletchley Park Challenge for information and inspiration.
If you are interested in getting involved as part of the GFN community, you can find information about future events on www.goodfornoth.ning.com .
