Hey kids, come join the NSA!

Hey boys and girls! Want to help your country defeat that mean old Osama? Then check out the National Security Agency's CryptoKids web site (via Hit and Run).
On this site, you can learn all about codes and ciphers, play lots of games and activities, and get to know each of us - Crypto Cat, Decipher Dog, Rosetta Stone, Slate, Joules, T.Top, and, of course, our leader CSS Sam.

You can also learn about the National Security Agency/Central Security Service - they're Americas real codemakers and codebreakers. Our Nation's leaders and warfighters count on the technology and information they get from NSA/CSS to get their jobs done. Without NSA/CSS, they wouldnt be able to talk to one another without the bad guys listening and they wouldnt be able to figure out what the bad guys were planning.

We hope you have lots of fun learning about cryptology and NSA/CSS. You might be part of the next generation of Americas codemakers and codebreakers.

The site comes complete with a bunch of material on making and breaking simple codes (cool), resources to teach kids about crypto (also cool), and detailed biographies of the CryptoKids characters (kind of creepy). Here's some of what CryptoCat does for fun:

I'm usually hanging out with my friends at the mall or catching the latest movie. I love helping people so I find different ways to help out around the community. Right now, I volunteer as a swim coach for children with special needs. Its a lot of fun AND I get to spend extra time with my sister who has Downs Syndrome.

The NSA Gifted and Talented program looks pretty cool, though.
