Enter our new Writing Challenge. The best entries will be published in the new hardback edition of ‘Time Traveller Danny and the Codebreaker’
Inspire your students to research the life and work of Alan Turing, the WW2 genius who saved many British lives by his work at Bletchley Park. Help them understand the importance of recent changes to legislation on LGBT issues.
We are not setting strict rules with regard to length. Send in pieces of writing on the two themes listed below OR if your students have compelling reasons to write on other themes that is fine, as long as the writing features Turing. Those pieces of writing that are of the highest standard will be included in the new special 2019 hardback edition of: ‘Time Traveller Danny and the Codebreaker’ by Paul Morris.
The writing subjects we suggest are:
The Death of Turing – The Case for DoubtA piece of discursive writing: Discuss the events leading up to his death that were examined at the inquest; was this inquest conducted in a thorough manner?
A letter from Alan to Christopher
A piece of creative writing: Christopher was Alan Turing’s boyhood friend who shared his passion for puzzles and maths. He died while they were still at school. Imagine Turing alive today writing to his friend about modern computer technology.
