Our flagship event for schools in Bristol takes place on the 4th December 2018!
The University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol has partnered with leading cyber organisations including Leonardo, National Cyber Security Centre, Cyber Security Challenge UK, South West Police Regional Cyber Crime Unit, Bristol & Bath Cyber, High Tech Bristol & Bath, Immersive Labs, Graphic Science and Weston College to set up Do Cyber. The group will work to raise awareness of cyber careers, by creating and delivering opportunities for young people to develop the necessary skills needed to work in cyber.
24 schools from across the region have signed up to attend Do Cyber’s first ‘Cyber Taster Day’ event at UWE on 4th December. Students aged between 12 to 14 years will get the opportunity to participate in a range of employer-led activities being delivered by companies including Leonardo, Just Eat, IBM, SANS, Corvid, Amiosec and South West Police Regional Cyber Crime Unit.
We’re catching up with the hacker! In Leonardo’s activity, Students take on the role of digital forensic examiners in a crime scene. They’ll wear crime scene gear while finding and seizing relevant evidence just like real life investigators in law enforcement.
Virtual and physical lock picking. Lock picking set – locks and lock picks breaking digital locks. IBM is also bringing along a Virtual Reality Security Operations Centre – made available during lunchtime
Corvid (part of Ultra Electronics)
In this workshop students will explore the basics of machine learning and apply it to classification problems by developing their own algorithms. The workshop will consist of 3 parts – an introduction to machine learning and its uses, classifying “creatures” and investigating the effect of a changing size of the data set, and writing their own decision algorithms to sort sweets.
The ‘Murder most Mathematical’ challenge is a pen and paper exercise. It involves solving a series clues to crack the code and reveal the identify of the ‘killer’
