Tangible Internet freedom

In trainings it would be useful to have hands-on exercises that are actually "hands on". The idea is to explain and illustrate technical concepts related to Internet freedom topics via tangible exercises that include 3D printed objects, laser cut objects, paper material, etc.


The objective is to design a set of playful exercises that digital security and Tor trainers can make use of in training sessions to aid in the teaching of technical concepts related to Internet freedom. Concepts can include: Tor onion routing, end-to-end encryption, symmetric and asymmetric encryption, metadata, Internet shutdowns, and more.

All exercises and corresponding design files will be uploaded to a webpage or GitLab project or group... we'll see :-) The idea is to make them as open as possible so folks can make use of them and adapt in their trainings, but also to collect feedback on the exercises, and perhaps allow for localization!

This is inspired by many projects of the sort including Crypto Santa (secret santa + onion routing) and Venezuela Inteligente's 3D-printed "Asymmetric Lock Box": https://github.com/VEinteligente/asymentric-lock-box/
