Our partners at WyoCAN have alerted us to a resource school librarians may be interested in – free games to teach cybersecurity concepts to K-12 students. The Center for Infrastructure Assurance & Security (CIAS) has developed three cybersecurity card games designed for students in grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-12. Free classroom packs (15 decks) are available to teachers.
Learn more about the games on the CIAS website under Gaming and on their Culture of Cybersecurity site. You can also find an introductory video to the program and the K-2 game, Cyber Threat Guardian, on the State Library’s WyoCAN page. To order free games on the CIAS website, use the “Click here to purchase” link at the bottom of the Gaming page, go to Cybersecurity Games, and look for the K-12 Classroom Box.
