The CyberFirst Girls Competition aims to inspire and encourage young girls (13-15 years old) to consider a career in cyber.
It is made up of two parts: the first is a set of online challenges covering four main cyber security topics. It aims to offer girls a fun yet challenging gameplay experience. The puzzles can become progressively harder allowing girls to stretch their learning and gain further knowledge that could help them in their everyday lives.
The online competition must be completed between 27th February and 6th March 2017.
For the second part, the top 10 teams from the online round will then be invited to an all-expenses-paid Grand Final in London. Teams will compete against each other to investigate some suspicious cyber activity, present their findings and solve who’s behind the crime.
This GCHQ competition is a chance to encourage more girls into the exciting world of problem solving, creativity, team working and applying knowledge to real world situations, in the context of Cyber Security, get a chance to go to the Grand Final and win some great prizes.
