Hack4Kids workshop

About Hack4Kids

Hack4kids is all about professional multilingual events targeting various audiences ranging from kids to teens, tailored to meet any need on the topic of information technology and security. To know more about the initiative: www.hack4kids.lu.

For this special Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg edition, a closed Hack4Kids event will be organized in partnership with Vauban, École Française de Luxembourg. Four classes of 6 to 7 years old children will get the opportunity to take part in the initiative and will attend dedicated workshops on technology, security and art.

The program

  • Draw me the Internet: an easy and fun introduction to how the Internet works. Via dedicated games, after having been introduced to the basics of Internet technology, children will be initiated to core communication security concepts ranging from usefulness of encrypted messages to the simulated effect of a distributed denial of service attack.

  • Coding workshop (Human Robotron): a first introduction to software development, where children program each other out of a simple maze.

  • One image, one thousand words: an activity illustrating the need of critical thinking. How much a picture out of its context can be misinterpretated? It will be up to the children’s vote.

  • Light painting: a workshop introducing children with a photographic technique based on a long exposure. Light and creativity can generate surprising results!
