Join the Girls Scouts of historic Georgia on an epic cyber challenge adventure as you detect, decode, defend, and more!
In order to host the first-ever girl scouts cyber challenge, supported by Raytheon, on Saturday, October 19, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) and Raytheon are working with 10 Girl Scout councils from across the nation, including Historic Georgia. The purpose of these activities is to prepare girls in Historic Georgia to pursue professions in computer science and cybersecurity by teaching them essential cybersecurity skills through tasks like running traceroutes and spotting phishing techniques.
In a hypothetical 2050 scenario, mankind have colonised the moon, and a ransomware attack has attacked the colony’s water supply. To determine who hacked the system and how to stop them, the girls must cooperate as a team on an incident response team.
With the help of Girl Scouts and Raytheon, Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors will put their leadership abilities to the test in an effort to save the moon.
Who? Girls can register for this event separately, outside of their troop, for Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors (please notice this).
