Understanding Computer Security Principles With Legos and Chocolate

Computer security is one of the most misunderstood technologies.  Bring the kids and learn the principles that are used to design secure systems by examining structures built with Legos that were designed to protect chocolate pieces.  By seeing physical designs with different flaws, participants will be able to understand how design problems lead to weaknesses that attackers can exploit. The presentation will include opportunities for audience participation (and chocolate consumption).
