Cyber Sprinters

An exciting new interactive online security resource for 7-11 year olds.

This is a new government initiative and aims to interest 7 to 11 years olds using a game.

CyberSprinters say the game empowers them to make smart decisions about staying secure online.

The digital game can be played on phone, tablet and desktop, and is supported by a suite of activities to be led by educational practitioners working with 7-11 year olds. Parents and carers can also try the CyberSprinter puzzles with their children at home!

There is also a toolkit of educational resources developed by the NCSC for practitioners that work with children aged 7-11. All of the resources, and the CyberSprinters game, focus around conveying key messages to children and will help them to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in crucial areas covering passwords, devices and messages.

The game and these resources can be used to support each other or separately. They are designed for use in both formal and non-formal education

If you have children between 7 and 11 , give it a go.

If you have tried the game, let us know what you think.
