NCSC CyberFirst

Just a quick post before I keel over from this week’s overexertion.

CyberFirst’s competitions are absolutely fantastic. For the first time I had a team (4 Year 8 girls) through to the semi-finals.

Keep an eye out for next year’s competition. Changes are students will be completely perplexed to begin with, but if they’re keen they’ll soon be tackling the challenges.

I think it was lockdown that spurred them on and gave them the time to do so well. Results from the semi finals will be released on Monday after they’ve figured out the point deductions for teams who continued to solve challenged throughout the mandatory lunch break.

Fingers crossed for the team. They’ve been working independently on this and showing great teamwork.
