Codebreakers is a program for young women who are currently either freshmen or sophomores in high school and who are interested in learning about computer security.
Graduate and undergraduate coordinators will teach participants how to apply basic security concepts through gaming, modeling, and simulation development. Students also will learn to program in python, as well as about robotics, digital forensics, cryptography, system vulnerability and cyberethics.
