LESSON PLANS Overview of the lesson plans
Summary: Goals: Materials: Preparation: Instructions: Resources: Intro / Hacking Culture An introduction into the concepts, cultures, ethics, and legality of hacking, cracking, and phreaking Awareness, definitions None required, potentially slides. Write up your own script/notes as needed, focus on your experiences and favorite stories. Spend time on the hacker topics, but don’t forget the mini civics and philosophy lessons. Ethics will underpin many other lessons, start early. MIT Hacks Gallery, Sample Slides online
Summary: Goals: Materials: Preparation: Instructions: Resources: Lockpicking The joys of lockpicking, emphasize the joys of learning inner-workings, strong ethics focus. Practical skill, even more lock-picking Training locks, clear locks, multiple styles >one pick/tension wrench for each student Prepared diagrams/videos Practice on locks and picks, verify difficulty, homemade wiperblade tension wrenches make pick-sets go further Start with ethics, diagrams next, hand out picks Schuyler Towne southord.com
Summary: Goals: Materials: Preparation: Instructions: Resources: Office Supply Warfare Good excuse to pop balloons, be “MacGyver-ish” Object repurposing, weapons safety, rules Lots! (pens, rubber bands, bbs, etc) Targets (balloons, paper, decorate your own!) Print copies of plans Build at least one of everything before-hand. 1.Pass out directions and materials 2.Run around helping 3.??? 4.Shoot stuff
Summary: Goals: Materials: Preparation: Instructions: Resources: Magic Tricks Because I think they’re fun. Hand-eye? No, just for fun really. Coins Cards (bulk from amazon) Rope! Magic tricks. Learn some. I can’t tell you the secrets, you might pass them on! Websites, bookstores.

Principles of polygraphs make an interesting topic.
Summary: Goals: Materials: Preparation: Instructions: Resources: Number Systems Studying number systems as a pre-cursor to Familiarity with non base-10 numbers Slide deck or whiteboard notes A refresher never hurts. Cover topics (binary, decimal, hexadecimal) Lots of exercises, competition Your CS degree finally pays off.
Future Topics Codes, Ciphers and Cryptography Logic Introduction to Programming Web Fundamentals Security Fundamentals Social Engineering Followup Nerf Modding
LESSONS LEARNED In which you avoid mistakes psifertex made
computers are hard
“hands on” is a must
“hands on” is crazy
Legal Issues State Childcare Requirements Freaked Out Parents
Recap Corrupting Teaching is fun, you should do it. Find fun topics you can teach on Avoid pitfalls (permission, help, planning)
