Are you aged 12-18 and enjoy puzzles, code breaking and cyber? Then our CyberCenturion competition could be just the thing for you.
Over the past two years we have seen over 50 teams compete from across the UK and Overseas Territories, but we want to see more!
How CyberCenturion works
CyberCenturion mirrors the US CyberPatriot competition, part of a major American STEM education programme presented by the Northrop Grumman Foundation and created by the US Air Force Association. CyberPatriot has already engaged more than 250,000 students, educating them on the opportunities in cyber security across the US.
The competition is played by teams of between four and six people. Each team must include a responsible adult as the liaison between the organisers and the participants, and every team participant must be 18 years old or under when the game is played. The competition is open to anyone in Europe that meets the age requirements and has the correct team format (including leader).
Each team must play a series of online qualifying rounds, which will challenge them to learn about networking, coding and cyber security. If the team scores higher than most of the other players and makes it to the leaderboard, then they will be invited to play in the National Final, a face-to-face competition which finds the ultimate champion for the year.
National Finals of CyberCenturion III
The 3rd CyberCenturion National Final will be held at The Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) at Savoy Place in London on Tuesday 25th of April 2017 in association with the AFA and Northrop Grumman.
The following 10 teams successfully got through 3 rounds of intensive competition to reach the final, we wish them all the best of luck on the day!!
