Come see how cybersecurity concepts can be incorporated into a STEM or cyber engineering classroom! NICERC's Cyber Literacy course introduces students to our definition of cyber, including all manner of electronic devices that interact with networks, from robots and laptops, to cell phones and IoT. Additionally, the course helps students understand how we all interact with those devices, and by extension, the computers and humans those devices eventually connect to. The course discusses the ethical implications posed by the use of and eventual ubiquity of those devices as we expect more and more capability from the networks and devices we connect with.

As a result of this session, you will understand the basic concepts being taught in the course and how the humanities and liberal arts concepts relate to the labs being performed in the classroom. Even if teachers do not use or teach the robotics content in the classroom, Cyber Literacy has content that can be incorporated into just about any classroom. Additionally, participants will learn how to register for FREE access to ALL of NICERC's content including more than 15 titles for use in your classroom, school, or district.
