    What is CyberPatriot?

    • CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program created by the Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future. 
    • At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition, which 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.
    • Through a series of online competition rounds, teams are given a set of virtual operating systems and are tasked with finding and fixing cybersecurity vulnerabilities while maintaining critical services.  
    • The top teams in the nation earn all-expenses-paid trips to the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.


    When and where do we meet?

    • More information about our meetings will be posted as it becomes available.
