Cyber and Cyber Security Workshop for 6-8th Grade Educators

The multi-year CyberCity Initiative funded by the George Kaiser Family Foundation seeks to infuse cyber education in every school, eventually in every classroom in the Tulsa metropolitan area. In the middle ages, students learned long division in college; now children learn it by fourth grade.  It is imperative to impart cyber education and skills throughout the K-12 system, helping energize a generation of cyber-savvy tinkerers and innovators who may well transform Tulsa and its economy.

Five CyberCity Educator Workshops will be conducted during the summer of 2021 to stimulate and enhance curricular and extra-curricular cyber activities in elementary, middle and high schools. The workshops will prepare K-12 grade educators to impart cyber, programming and cyber security learning experiences through grade-appropriate, standards-based activities. Workshop activities will include content lessons, hands-on laboratories, cooperative games and competitions in a variety of classroom settings.

All five CyberCity Educator Workshops will be conducted in in-person, half-day formats over ten days (two contiguous weeks).
