Cyber Security Teams
The Cyber Security Teams of Challenger Middle school provide students taking the Introduction to Cyber Security course, the opportunity to practice what they are learning in class. The students are divided into 5 person teams and compete in the National Youth Cyber Education program called Cyber Patriot sponsored by the Air Force Association. Additonal teams or open slots are also also filled with students in 6th and 7th grades based on available space after class students have their spots. A teacher may only have 5 teams thus a total of 25 may participate.
Most of our teams advance to National Semi-finals based on their full season performance and we usually have a top team finish in the top 10 - 11% in the nation which is now out of nearly 1000 middle schools in the US and at military bases abroad.
