We hope you enjoyed your summer break. We trust your summer break was, much like ours, busy! We spent our time:
  • teaching the Teaching Cybersecurity course in the National Cybersecurity Teaching Academy (NCTA) graduate certificate program.
  • attending the Argonne Cyber Guardians competition.
  • developing assessment resources for teachers in alignment with the 8 Big Ideas in the High School Cybersecurity Curriculum Guidelines.
  • growing, we added 250+ users of Teach Cyber this summer.
  • providing professional development (online and in person). If your state has a statewide initiative to integrate cybersecurity in secondary education, Teach Cyber can help with that initiative. Please take a look at our Starting a Cybersecurity Program page and reach out to us.


Thank you for applying for the Teach Cyber US Cyber Range Grant. We had many outstanding applicants. Each one is doing fantastic work in their school to further cybersecurity education. We are happy to share the awardees for access to the US Cyber Range through Teach Cyber.
