Cyber-in-a-Box is an annual school video challenge. CyberWyoming will provide each team of 5 students $50-$100 for equipment (or pizza) and t-shirts! (Note that the amount each team gets depends on our fundraising efforts.) The program is for Grades 6-12. The expected learning objectives and skills (besides cybersecurity topics) are:
This year’s challenge topic: Demystify Medical Technology! Get a tour at your local hospital to learn about an internet connected medical device, then research how to protect it and make a video!
Cybersecurity is a community issue. In 2022, Wyoming citizens reported losses of $17,980,141 (FBI Internet Crimes Complaint Center) for less than 600,000 people in the state. These losses are for our communities and we need to have conversations about being more security aware. When families discuss the wireless router’s password at the dinner table, we will know we have been successful!
Donate Now! $1000 gets your company’s name on the t-shirt!
In collaboration with the Wyoming State Library and the Wyoming CAN (Cybersecurity Action Network) Committee, the Cyber-in-a-Box School Video Challenge was developed. Using videos made by professionals or students, it includes a monthly canned 10 minute program designed to be distributed at local libraries to increase cyber safety in Wyoming communities.
