At Cybercave our Security module introduces students to software and tools used to test the security of networks and systems. These tools will be used to reveal exploits in a lab environment, allowing the students to hone their skills. We will introduce a Steganography activity that introduces students to an array of software and methods to aid them in hiding of data within media, and encrypting data of drives making them inaccessible to unwanted users. This is an indoor activity, no special clothing or accessories needed.
Global Positioning System (GPS)
At CyberCave our GPS module introduces students to the basic concepts of latitude and longitude, then builds upon those basics to inform students about GPS systems and how they function. This activity includes basic instructions on use of handheld GPS devices, and how they can be used effectively in today's society. This activity involves being outdoors, and plenty of walking so bring comfortable shoes and other seasonal appropriate clothing and accessories to comply with the weather. (This module can only be executed if weather permits.)
(You can bring up to 30 students for this module. If the weather is bad, the CyberCave staff will choose another module based upon the type of group.)
Encoding *NEW At Cybercave our Encoding module introduces basic methods of communications using encoding techniques such as morse code and the use of heliographs. Students involved in this module will learn how specific methods of encoding function, examples of this include using heliographs to communicate over long distances and if weather is not permitting the activity will be moved indoors and will be scaled down with the use of flashlights.
