The Cyber Castle Challenge is an exciting learning experience in Minecraft: Education for students. Teach cyber security and the digital technologies curriculum through four distinct seasons:
- Defend your assets: Identify assets and balance resources to defend against predictable waves of fox attacks.
- Evolving threats: Collect intelligence, continue to balance resources and defend against unpredictable waves of foxes.
- Kingdom expansion: Manage and defend a wider network as the Cyber Kingdom expands.
- Who can you trust? Verify the identity of those accessing the castle and train users to identify strange behaviour.
Using this activity students can explore a range of cyber security role models and potential careers. They will be able to make connections with how cyber security impacts their lives and their futures.
