The University of Florida is seeking partner educators from afterschool programs to implement CryptoComics, an NSF-funded afterschool curriculum, to engage students in grades 3-5 in cryptology and cybersecurity. Interested educators would implement the curriculum with 15-20 students this summer as part of the final implementation and research phase of the project. Priority will be given to educators who teach students from diverse backgrounds.

Each afterschool educator will receive a stipend of $1,500, curriculum materials, support from the team, and asynchronous online professional development to prepare them to use the curriculum.
