Do your children know how to best protect themselves on the Internet? This fun cybersecurity introductory course covers a wide range of topics related to security, modern computers, and the Internet. Some topics we cover are:

– How passwords work and why some are much better than others.
– How to build a simple project to demonstrate how fast it is to crack a simple password.
– Learn what computer viruses are, and put on your detective hat to see if you can see patterns.
– What information to share and not to share on the Internet, and for what reasons. Watch out for signs, and how data are used.
– Develop a better understanding of how the Internet works, and why we can talk to someone far away over the Internet.
– Binary – what it is and how it forms the foundation of everything we see and experience on computers.
– Encryption and build a fun Scratch project that generates Morse code, an encryption mechanism.

Join us to discover a new whole new world about computers, and be smarter about how you interact with computers and the Internet!
