~# 2018 Hak4Kidz Speakers
We are excited to bring you some well known and highly regarded speakers in the Information Security field, as well as, new speakers and a speaker covering a topic for parents. The following presentations are listed in scheduled order.
~## TOOOLTitle: Introduction to Lockpicking
The mission of the Open Organisation Of Lockpickers is to advance the general public knowledge about locks and lockpicking. By examining locks, safes, and other such hardware and by publicly discussing our findings we hope to strip away the mystery with which so many of these products are imbued. The more that people know about lock technology, the better they are capable of understanding how and where certain weaknesses are present. This makes them well-equipped to participate in sportpicking endeavors and also helps them simply be better consumers in the marketplace, making decisions based on sound fact and research.
~## David "Heal" SchwartzbergTitle: Safe and Secure Online
Privacy edition focuses on the “do’s and don’ts” of sharing information in the cyber world.

~# 2018 Workshops
Last year the reduced Workshop durations went very well. We have decided to keep that format. This year the workshops will run 60 - 90 minutes again.
IMPORTANT Your kids must be registered for the main Hak4Kidz conference, as well as, the Workshop(s), or the Workshop registration will be given to someone waitlisted and no refunds are available. Sorry if this sounds heavy handed, but we are attempting to avoid problems we've had in years past.
When registering, avoid scheduling conflicts by selecting only 1 morning or 1 afternoon workshop. The time of day is to the right of the workshop title in parenthesis.
Registration is ** OPEN ** for all workshops
Important Ensure your registered workshop schedule's do not conflict with one another. This workshop's expected runtime is 90 minutes. There is a morning session and an afternoon session. Tyros can only be registered for one of those sessions. Registration
~# An Intro to Java
In this workshop Janine cover the basics of Java. This will include an overview of class construction using analogies that are easy to understand, and writing a Java application from scratch. Topics include classes, methods, variables, and simple OO concepts. We will work together to construct a calculator that takes user input and outputs a result. By the end of this class students will have the knowledge to build an application on their own. This workshop requires that the student bring their own laptop. Due to time constraints, there will be required pre setup emailed in advance. This will ensure that we can hit the ground running!
~## Workshop Requirements
Tyros (students) will need to bring the following:
- Working Laptop with Windows 7 or higher, Mac OS X, or Linux installed
- Laptops must have Minimum RAM: 4GB, and 1GB free disk space
- Installation instructions will follow before workshop for:
- Java Standard Edition development kit (JDK) installed for your computer operating system.
- IDE: The Eclipse Foundation IDE pre-installed and tested.
- Understand 4th grade level mathematics.
~# Introduction to Soldering
Soldering is an old time hacking activity. When a bunch of makers and hackers are soldering together, it feels very much like a bunch of people knitting a quilt. Your bonding grows as the project progresses.
This year for Hak4Kidz, we purchased ten quality hobbyist Hakko F888D digital soldering irons. We want to see how popular this activity / workshop is and if we receive a positive response, we will look into purchasing additional equipment, kits, parts, etc. for future events!
The SparkFun WeevilEye beginner soldering kit will be the project we will be working on. There will be an introduction to the equipment, safety, soldering techniques, error correction, and general fun. This project is scheduled to be completed within 90 minutes.
~## Workshop Requirements
Please be at least 8 years old to participate. There are 2 kinds of soldering irons, the soldering iron that burns you and the soldering iron that is going to burn you. It's not fun getting burned so please keep safety in mind during this workshop. We will have burn gel and band-aids handy. Please make sure your Tyro is mature enough to wield this type of equipment.
~# Intro to Ethical Hacking on Kali Linux
In this workshop, students will learn how to create a virtual machine, install Kali Linux on it, and use the tools installed. In this session, topics such as what is a virtual machine, how to use the tools included, and how to install additional tools into Kali Linux will be covered. Students will leave this session ready to use Kali independently.
Important This workshop's expected runtime is 90 minutes.
