Cyber Sleuth Science Lab (CSSL) is an innovative educational program and supporting virtual learning environment, that combines pedagogical theory, gender inclusive instruction strategies, scientific principles/practices, gamification methods, computational thinking, and real-world problem solving. This program was developed with support from the National Science Foundation to provide underrepresented youth, especially girls, with digital forensic knowledge, skills and career pathways, challenging them to explore complex social issues related to technology and to become cyber sleuths using real-world digital forensic methods and tools to solve investigative scenarios. 

For more details about the CSSL research outcomes and the design, implementation of the project please consider reviewing the full paper which was published in Smart Learning Environments in January of 2023:
