SATL II: Cybersecurity uses curriculum from the CyberPatriot Competition and the National Youth Cyber Education Program. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services. Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Baltimore, MD for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.
Students as Technology Leaders (SATL) II: This course will focus on network structures and security. Students will work through the Cisco Academy website, preparing for the CyberPatriot or similar competition. This course will also prepare students for the Comp TIA’s Network+ exam (N10-006). This course provides a thorough overview of networking basics: MAC and IP addressing, hubs and switches, packets and ports, and OSI versus TCP/IP models. Taking the exam is at the student’s expense and not required of the course. *Students will compete in several online events.
