What did students said?

Ružica, 13: I really enjoyed working online, especially because we were able to collaborate. I was stunned when I found out that my password can be cracked in 2 minutes so now I create stronger passwords and I would recommend it to anyone.

Lovro, 13: It was especially interesting for me to study the types of online scams. Some attempts are so obvious that it’s funny how there are people who fall for them.

Hana, 13: Everything was great for me in this project. I missed hanging out live with my friends, but the assignments were fun so our time flew by even though we weren’t working in the classroom.
