Micro:bit have created this series of three lessons (designed for learners aged 11-14 years) to introduce cyber security. Learners explore the need to create strong passwords before writing algorithms and programs to create their own ‘strong password generator’ using the BBC micro:bit.
We have created this pack to support you in running your own Cyber Resilience and Internet Safety event. It contains information to support you when discussing different areas of CRIS (no one knows everything!) and provides activities to engage young people and adults to share their experiences of the online world.
If you do deliver your own CRIS event – please share your story with us here.
The Special Recognition Badge for Cyber Resilience and Internet Safety is designed to provide education professionals with the resources and support required to help pupils safely navigate the digital world.
This stand-alone badge will be available to all schools that demonstrate a strategic approach to cyber resilience and internet safety.

The Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge is a great resource to develop your learners to the pattern spotting and problem solving skills required for maths (and it also lends itself to cyber security education too!) The questions are in the form of engaging puzzles that start off relatively easy – so every student can have a go and should get something out of the competition.
The Bebras Challenge was actually the starting point for the Scottish Cyber Champions, the Greenwood Challengers – find out all about their journey here:
