CYBERSPRINTERS - A new online game to give children a head start with staying cyber secure
A new online game has been launched, to teach children about cyber security from an early age. CyberSprinters is a free interactive game, developed by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), aimed at 7 to 11-year-olds, It is designed to make learning about cyber security fun and interactive at a time when children might begin to seek more independence online.
The online game sees players become a ‘cybersprinter’, who is racing against its own depleting battery power. Users can win battery power by correctly answering questions about cyber security but face losing it, if they bump into ‘cybervillains’.
