Description: PPT :- http://www.shmoocon.org/2012/presentations/Corrupt%20The%20Youth.pptx
For the last six months, psifertex has been teaching a creative-problem solving class to fifth and sixth-graders at an after-school program. If you're thinking that's a stealthy pseudonym for a hacking indoctrination course, you'd be right. Based on that experience, this talk serves to encourage, enable, and warn those who might follow.
First, the encouragement -- as so much of the security community members now have families and children, the desire to focus on the literal next generation of hackers has been increasing (see, Defcon Social E for kids, kidscon). While these are excellent efforts, we've so far been mostly focusing on our own. The next step is to look outside our own walls to the mundanes around us.
Second, with this talk I'm releasing a set of lesson plans and materials developed for my version of the course under a creative commons license to smooth the way for others wanting to build their own versions.
Finally, the warning -- while the experience has been incredibly rewarding, it's not been without problems. Covering the many lessons learned will hopefully prevent those that follow from making some of the same mistakes.
Jordan Wiens (psifertex) is a hacker, a teacher, a capture-the-flag champion (though more frequently a loser), a presenter, a husband, a father, a nerf-afficionado, and he occasionally pretends to do real work.
