Cyber Fundamentals introduces students to the foundational concepts of coding and robotics through project-driven, hands-on modules. By integrating the micro:bit and the cyber:bot, students learn the basics of block-based and text-based programming and how they interact with sensors and robots. Cyber Fundamentals also explores the idea of a cyber society through liberal arts and technology crossovers.
