HHS Presents: Secure Your Mask Before Helping Others: Hacks for Security on Your Devices
This two-part presentation will provide an overview of the Hacker High School program and resources and materials available. In addition, the most popular topics in previous talks have been the discussion of simple things that you can use to improve your own digital experience and secure your information. The first part of this talk will focus on those ideas and discuss how to evaluate the many tools available to assist you.

The World of eSports: Not Quite Computer Science But Still Tons of Fun!
eSports. Short for "electronic sports." Otherwise known as competitive video gaming. It's not new, but it's the hottest things for teenagers and young adults. What is it? How does it work? Who organizes it? So many questions and plenty of answers! This session is geared towards any educator who is looking for an after-school program aimed at students interested in video games and competitive gaming. The way we see it: we know kids play video games at home, and they're probably playing them in your class. Why not put their skills to use and embrace their talents and abilities?

You're Certified. Now What? Team Teaching with TEALS Volunteers! (Panel)
There is an increasing demand for computer science courses yet a shortage of teachers with the subject matter expertise required to teach these classes. TEALS provides a short-term solution to the teacher shortage and helps schools build a long-term and sustainable computer science program by partnering teachers new to computer science with industry volunteers who have computer science content expertise. Teachers in these partnerships learn computer science while team-teaching with volunteers until they are comfortable teaching independently. In this session, participants will hear about the TEALS approach and discuss how to use industry volunteers to support their own teachers.

Computer Networking Cybersecurity Learning Labs on Jupyter Notebooks
Learning labs are the best environments in creating an engaging and collaborative environment for teaching computer networking and cybersecurity. We present teaching modules, lab content, and exercises on computer network security concepts with an instantaneous feedback mechanism on student learning levels. This will be an interactive session to demonstrate the tools, course content, and the auto-graded exercise capabilities.

Discrete Math: Activities You Can Use in Your Classroom
In this session, participants will learn about how we can relate discrete math for computer science to a number of other disciplines. Topics will be kept simple and I promise--no proofs (OK, maybe just one). Just a few different activities and ideas to help you show you students how computer science is being used in the liberal arts and other disciplines through discrete math applications.

Cybersecurity Capture-The-Flag Competitions: The How-To's, Getting Started, and Resources
Cybersecurity is the hottest topic in computer science education. We see the term "cybersecurity," but we do really know what it takes? How does one get started with cybersecurity? How do we get our students engaged and motivated? What does it involve? This session will cover capture-the-flag cybersecurity contests and resources for high school students. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop with internet access.
