The University of Kent's Institute of Cyber Security for Society spotted a lack of material to engage children with issues of cyber security. They commissioned an animated video explainer to highlight the need for future "cyber superheroes": people with the skills and knowledge to make our cyber world a safe place.
The animation has received the thumbs-up from thousands of viewers already but, with Safer Internet Day on the horizon, it will form a central part of iCSS campaign. Professor Li hopes the animation's reach will grow as a result, and inspire even more content to engage children in this crucial issue.
"I feel very proud of the end result," says Professor Li. "We've uploaded it to our YouTube channel, and put it on the front page of our website. We have shared it with multiple organisations active in cyber security and online safety education and skills development for children.
"We are running a social media campaign to reach out to a wider range of audience. We are even considering producing an illustrated book and a short play based on the video."
