CyberPatriot’s place in the media continues to grow!

Graham Warwick of Aviation Week and Technology Magazine just published a great article this week concerning the need for attracting a younger generation to cybersecurity.
 “For some, the search for both engineers and cybersecurity professionals leads back to the same issue – the need to reinvigorate science and math education in schools to refill a dwindling pipeline.”
Just what AFA's CyberPatriot aims to do! CyberPatriot provides high school students the technical skills, preparing them for a workforce that desperately needs them. It attracts students to the idea of cyber security, creating a career path and opportunities for students.

Warwick spoke with various aerospace and defense companies about their current and future needs to retain and fill STEM-related positions, spotlighting CyberPatriot as being a major recruiting ground for industry and government.

CyberPatriot isn’t just the ultimate cyber game for high schools students. It doesn’t just provide students experiential learning and valuable cyber security skills. It’s also creating a pipeline of students to be the next generation of engineers, mathematicians and scientists.
