CSTA has partnered on a program sponsored by the National Security Agency and powered by LifeJourney (http://www.lifejourney.us/) called the NSA Day of Cyber. This national initiative is designed to raise the awareness and the “national IQ” for STEM and Cyber Science education paths and there is no cost for students to participate.
The NSA Day of Cyber is a powerful tool to connect Computer Science to the nation’s fastest growing STEM Career Pathway and provides educators a ready-to-use tool to bring cyber-security into their classrooms.
The EasyCTF hacking contest will begin on October 31st and run through November 7th, 2015. This competition is assembled by high school and college volunteers and can be used as an entry point to discussing cybersecurity concepts. Teams of five students are encouraged to sign up and compete.
With the huge success HSCTF last year with more than 2000 people we are excited for HSCTF 2 this year! HSCTF will run for the second time from May 17th to May 24th, 2015. We hope to see you compete again this year as we revamped the competition with great problems, great features, and great prizes!
