Some of the Chanel College Digital Leaders had an exciting opportunity on Saturday, April 1st to compete in the ZeroDays Cyber Schools Competition held at Croke Park. This competition is the largest on-site capture the flag challenge in the world, and the students were thrilled to take part.
The competition was an excellent opportunity for the students to demonstrate their skills in cybersecurity, networking, and coding. The students worked together to solve a series of challenges that tested their knowledge and skills in these areas. The challenges ranged from basic coding exercises to complex lock picking scenarios.
The Chanel College Digital Leaders did an outstanding job and showed exceptional teamwork and problem-solving skills throughout the competition. Their hard work and dedication paid off, and they earned high scores in several of the challenges with Karl, Colin, Glenn, and Kyle coming in 6th place, and Eoghan, Aaron, Ross, and Tyrese coming in 7th place out of 45 teams.
The ZeroDays Cyber Schools Competition is a fantastic way for students to gain hands-on experience in cybersecurity and other related fields. It allows them to apply what they have learned in the classroom to real-world scenarios and challenges. This type of experience is invaluable for students interested in pursuing a career in technology or cybersecurity.
Everyone in Chanel College is incredibly proud of our Digital Leaders and the effort they put into this competition. They represented Chanel College exceptionally well, and they were thrilled to have had the opportunity to participate in such an exciting and challenging event.
The eight students would like to thank the organizers of the ZeroDays Cyber Schools Competition for creating this amazing opportunity for our students as well as Ms. Bradley for enabling them to take part in the competition. We look forward to seeing what our Digital Leaders will achieve in the future and they hope to participate in future events just like this one.
