Teaching secure programming should not be separate from teaching programming. By teaching high school students to code responsibly we foster a security mindset and establish a foundation of secure programming skills. High school computing teachers need ready-to-use resources that allow them to incorporate security principles in their programming classes. Additionally, it would be helpful to provide a seamless laboratory environment in which to run them. This paper discusses the Security Injections @ Towson project running in the RAVE environment which has proven success in the two- and four- year environment and could easily be adapted for the high school classroom.
