CyberPatriot High School Team

$250

with Jake Williams

Calendar Next session starts Aug 9, 2018 at 12 pm

CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program.  At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services in a six hour period.  Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Baltimore, MD for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.​

The Huntsville STEAM Works High School Team is intended for homeschooled students in grades 9-12, and is capped at 6 students, per competition rules. The team meets concurrently with the middle school school team to learn content, but compete in separate divisions. Practice typically runs 1 hour, but may run longer as needed. Team practice continues through early April for additional study of CyberSecurity content, or for additional practice time if the team advances.

Important Note: Scored rounds take place on competition weekends. The team will coordinate a 6 hour period to compete the weekends of November 2nd, December 7th, January 11th, and (if advancing to the SemiFinals) February 1st. The precise 6-hour blocks will be coordinated by team and coach consensus, but flexibile availability during these weekends is essential to participation. In the event the team advances to finals, the dates are April 7th-11th, 2019.
