Our partners at the Department of Homeland Security are excited to inform you about an upcoming training opportunity!

Computer science and cybersecurity education is a growing priority among state departments of education and school districts across the county. Due to a high demand for cybersecurity professionals, the concepts and fundamentals of Computer Science and Cyber Literacy are being integrated into the K-12 classroom.

DHS sponsors middle and high school cyber-integrated curricula in subjects such as math, science, and even humanities to prepare the next generation of cybersecurity professionals. The curricula are flexible to adapt to any classroom need and are free to all K-12 teachers across the country.

Watch an exclusive live information session as we discuss the K-12 Computer Science education landscape as well as how we can take an interdisciplinary approach to Cyber Literacy in K-12 education. Join us on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 from 1:45 pm to 3:00 pm ET. The demo will take place using a cutting edge DHS virtual world training platform, FedVTE Live. Learn more by joining us on December 7.
