Abstract : SCADA security is a terrific educational topic to highlight the threats and vulnerabilities that exist in the information technology arena for all (technical and nontechnical)students. Further, using inexpensive parts, schools can construct an interactive model that allows students to experience SCADA attacks from both tile position of the target and the attacker. This experience can be used to highlight several useful lessons that reinforce the need for security mindedness in all professions. In this paper we describe the design and construction of both the physical and logical aspects of our SCADA city and how it is used for the computer science 0.5 course.
