Benton High Wins Cyber Discovery 2.0 Competition
Six students from Benton High School showed their Tiger Pride at Louisiana Tech University, when they attended Cyber Discovery 2.0 over the summer.
The program, hosted by Cyber Innovation Center’s National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center (NICERC), is a follow-up to Cyber Discovery 1.0 which Benton’s team attended last summer and won.
The half-dozen students that attended are Collin Sanford, Abigail Lauterbach, Daniel Valcho, Emily Sparks, Jared Johnson and Zoey Hill. Teachers Marvin Nelson and Juan Alvarez accompanied the students and served as faculty facilitators.
The competition included six teams from Louisiana and Arkansas. Benton High School was recognized by their peers for setting the bar for the other teams. Consequently, they came in first place.
Discovery 2.0 camp is a week-long catalytic event for engaging students to explore the world of cyber through analysis and investigation for incoming juniors. The experience includes hands-on activities that incorporate investigative analysis in a challenging and interactive learning environment. Students are challenged daily to probe deeply into all potential clues on a specific cyber incident and apply critical thinking and teamwork to draw conclusions about the cause of each incident. The program is administered by professors from several different disciplines at Louisiana Tech.
In the Liberal Arts thread of the program, students attend daily lectures on issues related to cyber and are required to submit an essay each night. Cyber Discovery 2.0 gives students the opportunity to experience events related to national intelligence on a dynamic, interactive level.
As a reward for their accomplishment, Benton High School received $1,250. Hear these Tigers roar!
