What do teachers have to do?

It is really easy for schools to get involved - Teams just need a responsible adult aged over 18 years, appointed by the school as a team guardian.

Most importantly, team guardians do not need to have any cyber knowledge or be IT or computer science teachers.

Team guardians cannot help participants solve any challenges during the competition. The team guardian's role is only to register the participants and facilitate access to the competition.

Challenges suitable for all abilities

Whatever your students' abilities, from beginner to expert, the CyberFirst Girls Competition is an opportunity to learn something new about cyber security.

The content for each category of the competition is consistent with subjects within the Computer Science syllabus from both the National Curriculum and Scotland’s Curriculum for Excellence.

However, the competition will contain some advanced cyber topics that are not covered in traditional education but will seek to stretch the lateral thinking and additional cyber knowledge of the teams.
