Cyber Saturday - an Annual Fun-Filled Day of Cyber for Youth

The NCF's Education Program partners with the Maryland Innovation and Security Institute (MISI) to host Cyber Saturday, an annual program for 5th to 9th graders and their parents/guardians.

Cyber Saturday is a fun-filled day for youth interested in or want to learn more about cyber, data care, and how to stay safe online through hands-on exercises. MISI's team of engineers has brought activities from NCF's Outsmart Cyberthreats Collection to life to help youth understand the importance of protecting their data in an engaging, game-like environment.

During this free event, youth will not only have a great time and meet others who share their interest in cyber, but they'll gain cyber knowledge along the way. Adult chaperones may choose to participate in the Outsmart Cyberthreats activities along with their youth, spend time building their own data care knowledge with the NCF's Adult Data Care booklet, or put their cyber skills to the test in NCF's Escape Room.

The inaugural Cyber Saturday event will be held at the DreamPort Facility in Columbia, MD on June 10, 2023 from 10a-2pm. Registration for 2023 is limited to the first 100 students. *Please note that a parent/guardian/chaperone must remain in attendance with a student for the event.
