Louisiana Cyber Security Pathway Workshop Day 2

September 13, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Free professional development workshop for high school teachers!

This two-day workshop will certify Louisiana educators to teach one of the newest Jump Start STEM Pathways: Cyber Security. This workshop will show teachers cover content from NICERC’s Cyber Literacy 1 and 2 courses, which form the first two core courses of this pathway. Cyber Literacy builds strong cyber foundations by introducing the opportunities, threats, responsibilities, and legal constraints associated with operating in cyberspace. It uses the cyber:bot platform to lay the foundation for further exploration into STEM and cyber. The cyber:bot is a micro:bit outfitted with a robotics chassis. In this two day workshop, teachers will learn how to build and program a cyber:bot using Python and learn projects and strategies for teaching with the cyber:bot.

This workshop will be led by subject matter experts from the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center (NICERC), the academic division of the Cyber Innovation Center. Participants should bring their own laptop or Chromebook with USB capabilities. All teachers will receive access to free online curriculum materials!
