Crypto curriculum at the 2016 USENIX Security Advances in Security Education Workshop Prezi | paper

CyberPDX is a 5-day residential camp to introduce cybersecurity skills, principles, policies, and careers through a curriculum that integrates programming, cryptography, law/policy, and digital filmmaking. Instruction is interdisciplinary, taught by faculty from Computer Science, Sociology, and Film Studies. Our 2017 camp featured 10 teams of 6 students and teachers from 11 Oregon and Washington high schools.

CyberPDX curriculum aims to show students how to learn. They attend lectures and demonstrations to prepare for challenging projects that call on them to work cooperatively against deadlines. Teachers come to observe in order to gain knowledge of cyber and how their students learn it that they can use in a range of courses including language arts, digital media, math, and photography
