MHS Girl's Cyber Team Places 4th Nationally

MHS Cyber Girls

The MHS cyber-security team of Amanda Wang, Celina Liang, Elise-Cind Adjeroh and Amber Li placed 4th in the Cyber Girls Go National Competition.  This is a preeminent, high tech competition, for girls only, focused on cyber security.  The team placed 4th out of a field of 276 schools, nationally, that qualified for the championship event. The girls competed, online and socially isolated by completing a series of challenges in a virtual game of capture the flag.  Capture the flag has been a standard of testing cyber warfare competitors and serves well to delineate the skills of a team.  The MHS team has been practicing and working through the qualifying events throughout much of the past school year.  Their work has paid off as they have gone up against and prevailed over many highly experienced and skilled teams from all over the country.  The 4-girl team is a part of a larger group of girls that meet after school (when school is in session) to learn and practice coding and cyber skills.  The group (open to interested girls) will continue, next year, and look for other opportunities to learn and compete, as well.
