The Classroom of the Future Foundation’s (CFF) Career Discovery Cybersecurity Experience wrapped up in mid-December, with students at Health Sciences High & Middle College completing the final week of the program. During this culminating session, students presented their final cybersecurity infographic projects to a panel of industry experts, including Joe Gombos, Malware Analyst at Cylance Inc, Jerry Craft at Nth Generation, and Edgartt Melton, COO at VERT Solar Finance, via the Nepris platform.
“The experts’ passion about their jobs and advice for the students made it really fun.” – Mary Kraus, Teacher, Health Sciences High & Middle College
Each student prepared an infographic presentation that summarized the information that they had learned over the duration of the five-week program. Students then virtually presented to a panel of three cybersecurity industry experts, receiving feedback from them in real time. Check it out:
“It was amazing. Before the program I would have been very scared to do that!” – Student
