    National Security Agency Visits CCIC Cybersecurity Students

    Representatives of the National Security Agency visited CCIC on February 8th and 9th and provided the Cybersecurity classes a live, hands-on demonstration of their extremely rare and valuable Enigma machine. Students learned the history of the use of the machine by the Nazi government in WWII to encrypt communications to their field military units. They also learned in detail how the machine works and gained an appreciation for how difficult it would be to crack. The NSA representatives explained how the machine was broken by Alan Turing and others at Blechley Park in the UK, resulting in many, many lives saved and an earlier end to WWII.

    Popping the Hood on Electrical Vehicles

    Colorado Public Radio profile CCIC auto students learning how to build and service electric vehicles. The electric vehicle is a new experience for the students. There are few moving parts — around 20 in the average electric vehicle versus 2,000 in a gas-powered car. Electric vehicles need far less maintenance and repair than conventional combustion engines. Brake systems last longer. There are no mufflers, radiators or exhaust systems. Their batteries are projected to last between 100,000 and 200,000 miles.
