Cybersecurity Tutorial Series

The Cybersecurity Tutorial Series is a great way to experiment with some basic concepts, using micro:bit modules and the Python language. Some tutorials require just one micro:bit module, some require two, and advanced projects may require a cyber:bot robot. Each tutorial's first page lists prerequisites, hardware required, and which tutorials follow.

This series is great on its own or as a companion to the cyber:bot robotics series, or the electronics & pre-engineering lessons that go with the What's a Microcontroller? with Python and micro:bit series.

Teachers may request access to guides and assessment materials for these tutorials by emailing

These exploratory tutorials were created with support from CYBER.ORG, the academic initiative of the Cyber Innovation Center. See their Cybersecurity curriculum for high school for a year-long technical course that uses different hardware.
