About May’s Event – Supporting the Next Generation of Cybersecurity Professionals with the Microsoft TEALS Program

Presentation by: Microsoft TEALS Program

The Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS Program supports CS and Cybersecurity Education by partnering schools with industry professionals to teach and train high school teachers to build and grow their ability to offer Computer Science. Current Cybersecurity professionals and TEALS volunteers will share about their experience engaging high school students in Cybersecurity, including highlights, challenges, and opportunities to promote and support the next generation of the Cybersecurity workforce.
