“CyberDay was a great experience for my senior students. It was awesome getting them to work together to patch vulnerabilities on a simulation of our prime minister’s computer. The tasks ranged in difficulty and it challenged my students to think outside of the box and utilize resources available to them. The challenge was very hands on and it allowed the students to use their knowledge and apply what they’ve learned in class.” – Jerry Chen, Computers and Business Education Teacher, Cariboo Hill Secondary School, Burnaby, British Columbia
