Google for web vulnerability scanners

I would start with http://sectools.org/web-scanners.html

I have personally used nikto a lot. You can customize it easily.
I also use twill, selenium proxy as well.

Have heard nice things about appscan and acunetix. But haven't used
them personally.

If they are curious about learning they can try out web scarab and web goat
