Can I hack a website?

Yes, you read that learning objective correctly. For the next couple of weeks, years 5 and 6 will be learning how a website is built by hacking an example.

But wait, hacking’s a bad thing isn’t it? Well, not the reasons we’ll be doing it. In case you’re still not convinced watch this video from Mark “Mr C” Calleja of Hacklab. Mr C has been rated as an ‘Outstanding’ teacher by OFSTED and (like me) is a Raspberry Pi certified educator. All year 5 and 6 children will be watching the video tomorrow.

Still not convinced? You will be once you’ve seen the video. Oh, and it’s sponsored by a small software company called Microsoft!

To hack your own website you need to install Mozilla x-ray goggles. Click on the link and follow the instructions.

By the way, I forgot to mention. Did you know that I am going to be the new host of Top Gear?
