Cyber Patriot Team Challenge

Friday, December 7th our Cyber Patriot team, along with their coach, our Project Lead the Way Computer Science teacher, Mrs. Ramirez and technical mentor, Mr. Ramirez, took on Round 2 of the 2018 Cyber Patriot Challenge. Up next is the STATE COMPETITION.
The Cyber Patriot Challenge was created by the Air Force Association (AFA), to inspire K-12 students towards careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). During the challenge, students were given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems. They were tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services over a six-hour period.
We would like to give special thanks to Mrs. Ramirez for bringing this Computer Science opportunity to the students at Los Nietos Middle School STEAM Academy.
