CyberDay4Girls

IBM Cyber Day for Girls 2018
Hosted at Mt Hood Community College

Designed for girls in grades 7 & 8, #IBMCyberDay4Girls helps to build knowledge of cybersecurity through a fun day of learning, games and giveaways!  Expose young girls to opportunities in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) while they learn about solving real world problems and protecting their online identities.  Students will learn about exciting careers in cybersecurity as we introduce them to female role models studying and working in the field. This day of hands-on learning and exploration will help inspire young girls in the opportunities that lay ahead. This workshop is sponsored by IBM Security and provided at no cost to participants.
