“Cybersecurity for Middle School Teachers and Students (CyberMiSTS)” is a 2-week summer program for middle school teachers wishing to teach their students about cybersecurity. This workshop will provide educators on Long Island with the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to actively engage students and expose them to cybersecurity concepts and careers. In the CyberMiSTS workshop, teachers will learn from cybersecurity researchers, engage in hands-on activities, customize cybersecurity course materials for their own classrooms, and use Comic-BEE to develop branching, interactive web comics about cybersecurity targeted at their students. Participation is limited to 18 educators per year. Participants will receive $1000 and CTLE credit for completing the workshop and an additional $300 for sharing their experiences teaching their unit to middle school students.
