The security on this computer program has been compromised.
Personal messages, photos, banking information, credit card numbers, names, addresses, health records—a lot of your family's private information is stored on computers and zipping through the Internet! Cybersecurity is the act of keeping information, ranging from embarrassing baby photos to national secrets, private and viewed by only the right people. Try your hand at keeping online information safe with one of our cybersecurity science projects. For lesson plans, see our K-12 Cybersecurity Teacher's Resource.

Science Fair Project Idea
You might think that one sure-fire way to keep your computer safe from hackers is to disconnect it from the internet entirely.

In this project, you will investigate how a spy or hacker can steal data from an "air-gapped" computer that has no internet connection. You can even use Google's app to demonstrate how the data can be picked up by a nearby smartphone. Read more

How many websites do you have accounts with that store personal information like your name, email, phone number, or mailing address? If the people running these websites are not careful, hackers could gain unauthorized access to, and even change or delete, your information. They can do this using something called SQL injection, which involves entering malicious code into text fields on a website. In this project you will learn how SQL injection works and figure out how to prevent it. Read more
