AtariJaguar Posted August 21, 2018 Share Posted August 21, 2018 BLUF / TL;DR: For the 8-10 year old range, what is the best way to teach a kid about / how to hack? Any video series? Online subscription? A "kids-KALI," anything? LONG ASS STORY NO ONE WANTS TO READ: Hey guys, thought I'd put this out there. My child has the unfortunate circumstance of being an offspring of mine. I'm trying to prepare her "technically" as much as I can, in any way that I can. I got her a computer when she could barely talk. She started on Windows XP, and got her started in Gamestar Mechanic about 3 years ago at the age of 6. At 8, I got her into "Scratch," which is also an online game design program. For the past Summer, she's been using Code Monkey (which is pretty excellent for teaching programming basics), and I bought her a separate computer which she installed Ubuntu on, and she uses that for doing most internet things, and using her Windows 10 machine for things like Scratch. She's pretty sharp, and has picked up a lot. But I'm wondering how I can involve her in learning hacking concepts? I've done some things with her as time permits, but I would love to know if there's any kind of formal training program... like Code Monkey for software development? Bonus question (bonus for me), any good learning programs / routines to teach kids how to use Linux? Like with Windows 10, she can do a lot... but doesn't even know what PowerShell or DOS is... and I'd like for her to learn BASH and such in Linux too. Thanks!!! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
