Cyber Education Discovery Forum

The Cyber Education Discovery Forum (CEDF) is a multi-day professional development event designed to address our growing national shortage of cyber professionals at its roots. We believe that the key to filling the cyber workforce shortage is to empower and equip K-12 educators as they prepare the next generation to thrive in the cyber workforce of tomorrow.

What does this mission look like in reality? It’s teachers learning programming languages they’ve never attempted before, turning piles of parts into robots, exploring the implications of living in an internet-connected world, and uncovering new ways of thinking that will empower students to tackle complex problems with confidence. These things are what you’ll see at the CEDF. Not to mention:

  • Inspiration and ideas from guest speakers
  • Lasting connections with industry professionals, subject matter experts, and fellow educators
  • Concrete projects and strategies from NICERC’s free curricula


  • Day 1: Breakout sessions designed to provide insight to teachers on how to teach cyber topics, spark students’ interests, and guide interested students towards success in cyber careers.
  • Day 2: Full-day workshops for upper elementary, middle, and high school teachers
  • Day 3: Full-day workshops for upper elementary, middle, and high school teachers


Registration for the CEDF will open on February 1, 2019 and be hosted through Eventbrite.
