Upcoming Cyber Saturdays
Spring semester dates for Capitol’s popular Cyber Saturday program have been announced. Events will be held on January 24, February 28 and April 14.
Intended for community college students, Cyber Saturdays introduce participants to one of the highest-demand career fields available today. They do so by means of exciting, game-type activities that engage participants with something they like doing, while also imparting valuable training.
“These events increase awareness and then they get students interested in the profession—and that’s the objective,” says Professor William Butler, Chair of the Information Assurance department at Capitol.
The Cyber Saturday program was launched in 2013 with the help of a grant from the Department of Defense’s Information Assurance Scholarship Program. Previous Cyber Saturday events have included games such as Cyber Laser Tag, Cyber Treasure Hunt, Oddball and Balance Beam.
