Use Linux to learn how networks work and how to hack (and defend) them

Cybersecurity is one of the fastest-growing concerns for businesses and governments worldwide. In order to defend against malicious attacks, the world needs heroes called "white hat hackers," that have the skills to hack and use those powers for good! Campers in this topic will start by learning the basics of how the internet works and how information is secured and transferred. Using the Linux operating system, they will learn how unsecured information (like old wi-fi networks or weak passwords) are hacked and they will use real hacker tools to locate and fix those problems. Campers will learn how routers work, how websites are delivered, the fundamentals of encryption and passwords, and more! They'll walk away with a basic understanding of Linux, IT services, and the laws around cybersecurity. Each camper will also leave camp with a USB toolkit to continue exploring and securing the internet from home!

*Note: Although campers will learn to use real hacking tools, all of the specific hacks covered are well-known and will not work on up-to-date computers!
