Aug 4th, 2016

Jackson State Community College was represented at the Community College Cyber Security Summit (3CS) in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, July 22-24.

Representing JSCC were Tom Pigg, Dean of Allied Health and CIS, and Josh Britt, Associate Professor of Mathematics who have been working on a puzzle-based learning (PBL) project for over a year through the funding obtained from the Nation Science Foundation Project Grant.

With over 360 people in attendance, individuals obtained information pertaining to cyber security and cyber security education.

At the summit, Pigg and Britt demonstrated "game-like puzzles" that would enhance students' learning of cyber security.

"We were trying to roll the puzzles out to get some reviews and evaluations on their effectiveness," stated Pigg.

Nine community colleges will pilot these cyber security puzzles during the fall semester.
