Even though our Brownie troop can’t meet in person due to COVID-19, we met online and did activities to earn our “Cybersecurity” patch. The girls shared different things that have layers, clothing when we go outside, baking cakes – and we talked about how the computers we’re using so much right now also have layers of security to protect us.
The girls also drew pictures of castles – some of them had moats, and guards, and security cameras, and sharks, and all kinds of things to protect the castle. We talked about how computers have passwords and usernames, and how the school computers the girls are using have (fire)walls to keep out websites that aren’t appropriate for kids.
By completing this activity, the girls will earn this special cybersecurity patch. Learn how to earn yours.
