Feeling Resiliency

I've had the pleasure of helping to facilitate a cybercamp this week. It is a free opportunity for our middle school students to think about the essence of cybersecurity and cybersafety in a fun, relaxed environment. We are hosting the event in partnership with the Midwest Cyber Center and Scott Air Force Base. 

It has been incredible to see some amazing airmen who serve our country each day sit side-by-side with silly, funny, energetic middle schoolers working and thinking together solving problems. I didn't realize how amazing that this week would be.

Beyond the learning experience, we are seeing some amazing things. We are seeing serviceman tell their stories about their role in the military. We are seeing kids grow in their resiliency as they work on hard programs on the computers. We are seeing the joy of working together. We are seeing amazing learning emerge because we created the space for it to happen. 

Amazing to see so many kids focused on cybersafety and problem solving.
