Girl Scouts Cyber Challenge Brought to You by Raytheon

Girl Scouts today. Cyber Leaders Tomorrow.

Body

The Girl Scouts Cyber Challenge is Girl Scouts of the USA’s first-ever national STEM challenge event. By solving a hypothetical ransomware attack on a moon base, 2,500 girls across 10 U.S. pilot cities will cultivate key cybersecurity skills with support from Raytheon volunteers and mentors. After the pilot takes place in October 2019, Girl Scouts of the USA plans to make it available to all 111 of their councils.
