Hello World — Issue 18

Cybersecurity threats are increasing and changing all the time; teaching students how to protect themselves is vital. This issue spans the ethics and legalities of hacking, advice about teaching cybersecurity to primary-school children, and an introduction to quantum cryptography.

We also share some fantastic ideas for making this topic as hands-on as possible, including through using network robots, using tools and techniques used by real-life penetration testers, and by taking part in a ‘capture the flag’ competition.

Also in this issue:

  • Using computational methods to analyse literature
  • Developing computational thinking skills through Japanese logic puzzles
  • Top tips for representing computing at school open days
