Technology Grant Program
We're here to remove barriers for teachers. If that barrier is classroom technology, you're in the right place.
CYBER.ORG's technology grant program is designed to support teachers and qualified extracurricular programs to provide cyber education to K-12 students in the United States. Grants are awarded based on the availability of funds, geographic representation, and demonstrated need, with preference for applicants who intend to use CYBER.ORG curriculum materials. Applications will be received continuously, and awards will be made each year in September (application deadline August 15) and April (application deadline March 15).
This is a cloud-hosted infrastructure that provides your students with safe, virtual environments for realistic, hands-on cybersecurity labs and exercises. Each student per class will need a license.
The US Cyber Range can be used to support CYBER.ORG's Cybersecurity course.
The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces you to how software and hardware work together. It has an LED light display, buttons, sensors and many input/output features that, when programmed, let it interact with you and your world.
The cyber:bot merges a BBC micro:bit with the Parallax small robot form factor that’s a proven STEM success in classrooms by adding a real-world, hands-on hardware dimension to Python-focused computer science, CTE, and cybersecurity programs.
The cyber:bot is used in CYBER.ORG's Cyber Literacy course.
The Shield-Bot’s Board of Education Shield makes it easy for Arduino Uno programmers to build their own robot using Parallax’s beginner-friendly sensors and microcontroller accessories.
This is a great combination for learning programming, electronics, and robotics — and is most commonly chosen when the Arduino is a key requirement.
The Shield-Bot is used in CYBER.ORG's Cyber Literacy course.
This Board of Education on wheels is designed for skill-building. Students will wire breadboard-based circuits that use touch, visible light, and infrared light for robot navigation, using real-world components.
The robot’s BASIC Stamp brain is programmed in PBASIC, a simple text based language where each line in a single file performs a single task, with nothing hidden or abstracted in libraries.
The Boe-Bot is used in CYBER.ORG's Cyber Literacy course.

Hands-on learning experiences build student confidence.
