Teach Computer Networking and Cybersecurity with Ease

The Lesson Plan

We promise to provide you with teaching and learning resources and we do! Our lesson plan is designed for workshop sessions between 1.5 to 3 hours. You can take a sneak peek at our presentation deck below!

THE EDUCATIONAL CONCEPT OF THE GAME

To introduce cyber security in schools and organizations, we realize that we need more than just games for classroom. So we decide to break down the actions that happen behind the door of the internet: how search works, into a fun challenging game.

The mechanics of the game reflects the workings of modern computer networking. When you perform a search on Google, this is what happens:

You (the Client), puts in a request (a Spudnet Order) to Google’s server (Warehouse). The server then dispatches the data packets (Ships), hopping through multiple routes (Nodes) to reach you.

WHY CYBERSECURITY MATTERS

The internet is a scary place. It’s an inevitable part of our lives in this digital era. Teaching everyone, especially kids, how to stay safe on the internet is extremely important, especially to prevent them from becoming victims of cyber crimes. Practical knowledge of cyber wellness for students will improve their ability to protect themselves now and in the future.

The DHS Cybersecuriy Education Training Assistance Program (CETAP) should add this in their list of tools to teach cybersecurity in classrooms. It gives students a holistic picture of how the internet works and helps them visualize how cyber attacks happen on a network. Great addition to the class!

The game looks and feels fantastic! Frankly, a lot of the security games in my collection either look or feel flimsy, and that sends an unfortunate message.

Thank you for the thrilling experience of entering the Spudnet. This game is fun and helps to educate children and grownups. It was worth every cent!
