Hacking

What is Ethical Hacking?

Black hats and white hats

There are two types of hackers: Black hats and White hats. Black hats are cyber criminals who break into computer systems for financial gain. White hacks are the good guys, the hackers who use their knowledge to make sure computer systems are secure.

In this course we’re going to learn about security and the different methods used by hackers. This will give us the knowledge and skills to protect ourselves better on the internet.

Projects

What will we do?

Linux Basics

Linux is the operating system of choice for most hackers and a lot of tech professionals.We’re going to install it on our machines and learn the basics of Linux and the terminal. A great thing about Linux is that it’s like an open playground. Which in a case of an Operating System means that with enough of determination you can make an OS of your own.

Security

Here’s a “fun” fact for you: whenever you’re connected to a public wi-fi (like the one at your favourite coffee shop), your device instantly becomes a target of a Black hat hacker. He can easily reach into you digital pocket and take out almost anything. Anything you’re typing that is. So all those private massages, your credit card info, your usernames or passwords.

We’ll be learning about that and much more. We’ll talk about different threats and dangers in a network. And we’re going to discuss passwords, trojans, backdoors, viruses, worms and DDoS attacks.

Programming with Python

We'll be using the popular programming language Python in this course. We'll use Python to write our own small projects.

Knowledge for good

“With great power comes great responsibility” is what Uncle Ben told Peter Parker. That is especially true in this case. We are going to make a promise to ourselves and the restof the class that we will only use our knowledge of hacking for good. We’ll also discuss how you can make a career out of hacking which is completely legal.

After Class

After Class Activity

We have an After Class Activity option available for this age group.

What does it mean?

While your kid has a summer vacation you most likely still have to be at work, so picking up your kid at 12:00 might not be that easy. By choosing this option you can pick your kid up as late as 16:00 instead, for only 1000 kr more.

What will my kid be doing for the next 4 hours?

Internet Safety

In the 21 century you need to know not only how to safely cross the road or that you shouldn’t talk to strangers. You need to learn how to keep yourself safe in the online world.

Presentations

The big presentation awaits us on Friday so we’ll put some time into learning some presentation tricks and making it exciting for our guests.

Having fun

After learning so many new things and working for several hours we deserve to have some fun. We’ll finish the day with a Nintendo Switch and a game tournament!

My greatest interests are education and learning and I spend a major part of my time coming up with new and exciting ways for students to acquire knowledge and understand things deeply.

Many a child, and teenagers alike, have been educated in the craft of game development under the reign of my might!
