Learn about cyber security through our lessons, games and statistics!
Navya R., Ashley C.
Our website provides games, statistics, videos and lessons that can help kids understand cyber security. The video included provides a basic understanding of the internet, and the lessons introduce the user to cyber security. The games provide a simulation of hackers and there is a password strength tool to ensure your password is strong. The statistics help reveal real data that have impacted the cyber security field.
Kids are exposed to technology at a young age, and sometimes, they are not aware of cyber threats like hackers. They may set passwords that are very easy to hack, and this can lead to confidential information being stolen.
We want to create awareness about the importance of cyber security through our website, and we have included games to make the learning process fun.
The hashing SHA-256 function, which reveals how the computer encrypts your password, was difficult to embed in our website, but after watching some tutorials, we were able to make it a part of our website. The website template had over 2000 lines of code, and it was initially hard to change the aesthetics, but by using trial and error, we could add the images that we wanted.
