Year 8 Cyber Challenge Day

Year 8 spent the 19th November undertaking twelve cyber-challenges ranging from using Binary, Hexadecimal, Morse and ASCII to debugging games to seeing how Google tracks where you have been to discovering how images are created on a computer. 
 
They also spent time defusing (virtual!) bombs, cracking codes, building circuits and programming droids! The Year 8 students demonstrated impressive code cracking skills and concentration during the day to complete the challenges succesfully.
 
The cyber-challenge day is designed to demonstrate to students the range of skills needed within the technology industry, especially with the growing international significance attached to cyber security.
 
We are very grateful for the support of Raytheon UK and Jeremy Gibbs in facilitating this succesful day.
