Cyber Discovery Challenge

Posted on February 28, 2020


Well done to our team of codebreakers, Hannah, Tess, Maliha and India, who competed in the second round of the GCHQ Cyber Discovery Challenge at the MET Office before half term. 

The girls took to their laptops to solve a series of online puzzles in the first co-ordinated event of this kind run by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), a part of GCHQ, pitting their cyber skills against hundreds of girls taking part in simultaneous contests across the UK. The local contests are part of the NCSC’s CyberFirst Girls Competition, an annual event aimed at boosting interest in cyber security among females, who are currently under-represented in the industry. Nearly 12,000 girls have taken part in this year’s contest.
