Henry Ford Academy has joined the CyberPatriot Program and started the HFA CyberPatriot Team. The team will be working with computers, Internet, servers, virtual images, cybersecurity and cyber ethics issues. They will be learning how to fix hardware, secure servers and programs, and make logical and ethical decisions through hands-on and virtual experiences. The team will also participate in the National Competition. Participants are expected to adhere to the highest ethical standards and maintain a strict code of conduct.
“The mission of CyberPatriot is to inspire students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future through three main programs: the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition, AFA CyberCamps, and the Elementary School Cyber Education Initiative.” (CyberPatriot VIII rules book)
