Intro Text

CYBER.ORG will be leading a workshop at The We Teach CS Cybersecurity Fundamentals Workshop.  In this session participants can expect to be led through beginning Cybersecurity lessons that are rigorous, relevant, and aligned with the TEKS for the Foundations of Cybersecurity course.  Participants will gain access to the free Cybersecurity curricula by Cyber.org and given temporary access to the EPIC Cyber Range so they may practice the hands-on components of Cybersecurity attacks.  During the workshop, teachers will have the opportunity to practice cyber defense skills in a AFA CyberPatriot environment as well as their cyber offense skills in a Capture the Flag practice gymnasium!
