How PowerUp Cyber Games Works

Students will receive instant feedback and PowerUp Cyber Games winners are determined by cumulative season performance.

Open Gymnasium – students will have the ability to use the Cyber Skyline Practice Gym at any given time during the competition season to increase their cyber skills before competing. We recommend students practice two or three hours per week.

NOV – APRIL

Monthly Competitions – each month, students will choose one of three days to compete with their team. This will be three hours of uninterrupted competition time and reports will be distributed after competitions. The last day for competitions will be April 16.

MAY

Award Ceremony – during the first week of May, students will be encouraged to attend the PowerUp Cyber Games Award Ceremony. This is where teams ranking 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will be announced along with the most improved team.

Child + friends: using the link below, the parent-coach will create an account and register their team(s) of up to four students. The parent-coach will then lead the team during competition.

Inclusive. Equitable. Accessible.

PowerUp Cyber Games provides both students and teachers a more equitable learning environment without the fear of being eliminated from the competition.

The PowerUp Cyber Games has allowed our students meaningful exposure in the field of cybersecurity, and the design of the program has kept them motivated throughout the year to truly put in a tremendous amount of work.

The experience was scaffolded and rigorous. Students grew their skills as a team, and the instruction they received from their mentor, a practicing cybersecurity professional, was as from a coach rather than a teacher.

This competition gives students the opportunity to explore and greatly increase their knowledge in the field of cybersecurity, while developing valuable life skills that will serve these individuals for the rest of their lives.
