Cybersecurity with Python and micro:bit Resources

These tutorials with Python and micro:bit add an often-overlooked physical computing dimension to cybersecurity programs. The Cybersecurity Tutorial Series can be taught stand-alone or as a companion series to the cyber:bot Tutorial Series focusing on robotics, or the What's a Microcontroller? with Python and micro:bit Tutorial Series, which focuses on electronics and circuit-building.

These lessons may require one or two micro:bit GO kits (#32717), and some optional activities also include a cyber:bot robot.  See the first page of each tutorial for prerequisite lessons and hardware requirements.
