Overview
Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) CyLab Security and Privacy Institute developed picoCTF, a free, online cybersecurity competition for middle and high school students worldwide. Since picoCTF’s launch in 2013, over 50,000 students from over 1,000 schools in at least 48 states and abroad have participated. By the end of the 10-day contest, participants are able to solve real cybersecurity problems similar to those dealt with by cybersecurity professionals today. With a particular focus on promoting diversity, CMU made the contest such that all that is required to play is a computer with an internet connection. This grant will help expand and further evolve the picoCTF program.
