This presentation summarizes and updates progress from the Cyber Center for Education and Innovation, Home of the National Cryptologic Museum.  Their unique national value proposition brings together cybersecurity education and invites collaboration. Their mission is to broaden cyber threat awareness, understanding of cybersecurity best practices and educational outreach, and to enhance operational cybersecurity workforce development in support of our nation's critical infrastructure sectors. CCEI is creating a cybersecurity center of gravity integrating industry, government and academic stakeholder resources; and advancing cybersecurity education. Planned educational outreach programs will leverage and share the unsurpassed resources, curriculum and know-how of the NSA in an unclassified, publicly-accessible setting addressing both the K-12 and 13-20 age cohorts.  Their cornerstones are the Digital Curriculum Library of assured quality cybersecurity curriculum and sharing experiences through virtual technologies.  This talk will also explore the need for "virtual playgrounds" affording K-12 and beyond the opportunity to explore, experiment and hone their cybersecurity skills without the fear or harm of the live INTERNet.  Many Cyber Ranges are popping up that may be useful in investigating this key educational need.
