Students top the Army’s STEM Cyber Challenge in Blandford


Nine GCSE Computer Science pupils from Bryanston School took part in the Army STEM Cyber Challenge run by the 11th (Royal School of Signals) Signal Regiment at Blandford Camp at the end of September.

The pupils completed activities including open-source intelligence gathering, Wi-Fi password cracking, deploying exploits to gain control of remote computers and using military tracking systems.
In the afternoon, pupils competed against schools from Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire in an escape room style challenge involving code breaking, accessing a locked laptop and gaining control of a wireless router.

Bryanston fielded two teams in a close-run contest against the clock. Jade B, Will J, Joe S-H, Jack W and Steven Z set a blistering pace, but in a late charge Harry B, Christabel C-J, Helena G and Angus M came in just a couple of minutes ahead, giving Bryanston first and second place overall.
Well done to everyone that took part!
