wtfacoconut Posted December 31, 2009 Share Posted December 31, 2009 HELLO ALL! I'm actually a college student that just graduated high school my self this past August (8-23-09) and am currently in college. In my spare time I teach and tutor kids in various IT/computer topics. In my many months of doing this (and I love doing this) I've taught middle and high school kids who are very keen and just have a natural knack for this stuff, everything from something as basic as helping them getting their A+ certification to network administration with windows and linux servers, and even helping the occasional would be hacker kid how to do some basic penetration testing (the rightly 'ethical' way.). I love doing this so much that I've invested a great deal of time in buying my kiddo's books, equipment, lab materials, and etc. It's gotten to the point now where I've got enough kids, parents, and teachers who like me and are willing to back me up so that I can get a little informal school/class going on where I can teach kids the basics of IT security and slowly get them into some of the more fun and practical sides of hacking (NOT cracking). I've been looking around to see if there was some kind of program out there that was already doing what it is that I'm trying to start up and do. CEH is way to advanced and dry for kids, plus (sry to those who do have a CEH) after looking at the CEH curriculum, it seems pretty crappy. It almost looks like the author of that course just googled hacking. The best and closest thing that I've been able to find was this free curriculum created and endorsed by ISECOM: http://www.hackerhighschool.org/ It's a very short lesson plan and feels very lacking in a lot of areas, especially the labs. I basically want to use this as a foundation and add more topics, labs, explanations, and etc to make it not only more accurate, but easy and from to learn from. So please, to everybody who's interested, please take a moment to look at the lessons (it won't take long, trust me, it'll take like 30 min max.) and post any ideas on what can/should be added, removed, done differently, or any other good suggestive ideas. If anyone has any questions, please just pm me. Thanks in advance guys and lets use this so I can help end the script kiddie madness.
