Integrating Cybersecurity into the Classroom
The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity Education Training Assistance Program (CETAP) equips K-12 teachers with cybersecurity curricula and education tools. Through the CETAP grant, the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center (NICERC), Bossier City, Louisiana, develops and distributes free cybersecurity, STEM, and computer science curricula to K-12 educators across the country. The curricula comprises the Cyber Interstate – a robust library of cyber-based curricula that provides opportunities for students to become aware of cyber issues, engage in cybersecurity education, and enter cybersecurity career fields. These programs focus on growing and educating the next generation cyber-literate workforce.
