Cybersecurity for Middle School Teachers and Students (CyberMiSTS) is hosting a summer virtual workshop that will provide middle school teachers the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to teach their students about cybersecurity. Although the target audience is Career and Technical Education teachers, we welcome any other teachers who are able to integrate a cybersecurity unit into their curriculum.
A three-week long CyberMiSTS workshop on July 6-24, 2020 will be held every weekday from 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM EST.
If you complete this 15-day workshop, you will receive a $1000 stipend. No stipend will be given if you drop out before the end. If you deliver your lessons to your class, collect data regarding their learning, and then share the results at a subsequent half-day workshop, you will receive an additional $300 stipend. You may also receive 57 hours of CTLE (Continuing Teacher and Leader Education).
