Cyber-patriots is one the youngest teams at our school. We gather cadets with an interest in technology to teach them the fundamentals of software security. All members will have the option to learn one of three different systems. Those being Windows, Cisco, and Linux. Each system is different and requires its own skill set which is why we have brought in mentors that specialize in those systems to teach the cadets. Our competitions can last up to 6 hours, but in the end can have the biggest awards. In years prior, the best teams in Texas have won tablets, scholarships, and even $1,000 dollars to spend on whatever they would like to.
