Hands-on Cybercamp with Networked Robots


Attendees will learn about a novel way to teach cybersecurity using WiFi enabled robots and a block-based programming environment called NetsBlox. The emphasis is on hands-on exercises where students write programs to both attack and defend the robots. More precisely, the communication happens between the student’s program and the robots via the NetsBlox server; simulating overhearing of communication between other students’ programs and their robots. This motivates the need for cybersecurity. Learn how to implement various attack and defense approaches with actual working robots. Presenters will describe this new approach, the technology behind it, and present some of the curricular units developed.
