This is really cool, and I’m glad I came across it. I have some qualms about starting kids with tech so young (<10), but that’s probably my crotchety “I remember dial-up internet and no cell phones” experience talking.
The mission statement of r00tz is one I definitely can get behind:
“A place where kids learn white-hat hacking to better the world
Through hands-on workshops and games, kids learn reverse engineering, soldering, cryptography and how to responsibly disclose security bugs”
I’ll be looking at this when planning some security training in this area, I want it to feel like CCDC but without the necessity of college. Excellent work!
