Gull Lake High School places in top ten at Cyber Summit

0 votes

On October 30, sophomore Eric Mayo, junior Nicolas Durian, and senior Spencer Schewe attended the Governor’s High School Cyber Challenge in Detroit. This team of computer science students scored within the top ten out of the 188 teams. The challenge consisted of answering trivia while trying to hack into the cyber city that was created.

“There was ‘trivia’ but that was not the main focus,” Durian said. “The main focus was penetrating through the website creating errors, corruptions and much more.”

The purpose of the trivia was for teams struggling on the hacking side of the competition.

There were two rounds, the governor’s challenge and Cyber Summit.

“The criteria to get [to Cyber Summit] is to pass the first round, the governor’s challenge,” said Durian.

The top ten were able to advance onto the Cyber Summit to compete for the first place spot. There was a total of 80 questions over a span of four days for both rounds.

The top three spots at the Cyber Summit got a plaque or trophy. The trophy even had lights in it that the team could program in different ways.
