Grant teaches hands-on preventative hacking and coding


The training of future cyber warriors is already starting in some classrooms.

A recent grant for one Arkansas high school is allowing teens to get hands-on with preventative hacking and coding, meaning they could one day be the key to protecting other kids – and maybe even you—from a cyber-attack.

Teachers said the skills the students are learning will carry over into any career field.

This is the first year for this class and something the district hopes to continue.

They hope the teens will look in the mirror and realize they could be the future of cyber security.
