2018 Cyber Security Challenge
Using Raspberry Pi as a platform, students will have the opportunity to learn about computer programming, including several coding languages, and ultimately create a prototype using the skills they gain. Teams will be given a problem statement in the weeks leading up to the STEM Trifecta event, and will be challenged to create their solution on site using a Raspberry Pi and the materials provided. Elementary and middle school students will model their working simulation for a panel for judges. Teams will be judged on a successfully working prototype.
High school students will use their skills in networking, operating systems, and basic computer science concepts to defend a digital infrastructure. Competing in a day long round similar to other cyber defense competitions, teams will use virtual images to locate potential vulnerabilities and harden their system, all while maintaining critical services. Teams will also submit a Request For Proposal (RFP) prior to the day of the event that requires review and written assessment of a company's cyber security needs as well as a proposal and bid for services to be provided. Teams will be judged based on their proposal evaluation and performance the day of the event.
