The University of Adelaide's School of Computer Science is calling on interested students and teachers to have fun and learn some excellent cybersecurity skills at this weekend's PeCan+ Capture the Flag event!

High school students and their teachers are invited to join Adelaide’s inaugural Capture the Flag training and competition weekend. Learn about cybersecurity tools and put them into practice as you capture ‘flags’ upon completing each cybersecurity challenge.

Saturday the 10th of September is a training day, which is open to both teachers and students, with no (or very little) previous experience in programming or cybersecurity. Our onsite tutors will support you while you learn about Cryptography, Digital Forensics, Steganography, Reverse Engineering, and Software and Web exploitation.

Sunday the 11th of September will be competition day and is open to high school students (teachers are more than welcome as spectators or to join a teachers team!), where there will be a beginner, intermediate and advanced division. Students are invited to register in teams of 4, but individuals can register to be placed in a team too! A 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize will be up for grabs.

Date: Saturday 10 – Sunday 11 September, 2022. Doors open at 8:30am for a 9:30am start.
