Cyber Security STEM Day

On Thursday 15th June, around 30 students from Year 10 and Year 11 had the opportunity to take part in a free STEM Day, sponsored by Thales and delivered by The Smallpeice Trust - a charity that supports and encourages the engineers of the future.

The theme for the STEM Day was Cyber Security, which is a big part of Thales’ business. During the workshop, the teams had the opportunity to learn about ciphers, codes and the techniques used by hackers to gain access to individuals personal data. Year 10 & 11 put this knowledge to the test in a series of code cracking challenges. In the final challenge of the day the teams went head-to-head to determine who would be the first to crack a code and hack into a company website.

Ami and Sean, with help from ex pupil Bailey Allen (Thales), delivered the workshop and were very impressed with the speed at which our students completed each task. Maybe we have some future Cyber security experts in our midst!

Well done to all the students who took part and a special mention to our winning hackers – team ‘John Tess’ (Sadie, Eilidh, Ronan, Geordan, James, Oliver). Thanks to Ami and Sean from the Smallpeice Trust for delivering the workshop, to our sponsor and Bailey Allen from Thales.
