Online Safety with Cyber Sprinters!
A new online game has been launched to help primary schools, clubs and other youth groups teach children about cyber security from an early age.
CyberSprinters is a free interactive game, developed by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) – a part of GCHQ, aimed at 7 to 11-year-olds.
The online game sees players become a ‘cybersprinter’ who is racing against its own depleting battery power. Users can win battery power by correctly answering questions about cyber security but face losing it if they bump into ‘cybervillains’.
