CyberFirst RGS Girls Can Crack Codes
Girls at RGS Worcester are once more participating in the national ‘CyberFirst Girls Competition’, which aims to inspire and support girls interested in cyber security. The competition is organised by the National Cyber Security Centre and challenges teams of Year Eight pupils to solve a number of online puzzles, highlighting some of the key skills and aptitude required for a rewarding career in cyber. The top teams in each region then compete for a place in the Grand Final.
Mr Webster, Head of Computing and IT explains, “This is a great opportunity for girls at RGS to support those interested in Computer Science related careers. We have a number of Year Eight girls taking part which is fantastic! In all Year groups, Computer Science lessons at RGS encourage critical thinking, analysis and problem solving – all key attributes to a future where cyber knowledge and understanding is essential. We have growing numbers of pupils opting to take Computer Science at both GCSE and A Level and it is great to see the next generation of computing talent developing fundamental skills.”
We look forward to following the progress of our team’s journey through the competition.
