Girl Power event held at the John Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab, Kossiakoff Conference and Education Center in Laurel Maryland

On March 6th, 16 volunteers from Women's Society of Cyberjutsu held a STEM workshop for middle-school aged girls for the annual "Girl Power" event. The volunteers were technical assistants and a few actually taught some of the lesson. 

Two 45-minute workshops were held reaching 48 students. WSC volunteer, Marcelle Lee, lead the way teaching 'Track the Hacker'. 

Track the Hacker excerpt:

Being a good cyber ninja means you have to know how you may be attacked in the cyber world so you can stop the attack from happening. Knowing how to investigate once you've been hacked is equally important. This hands-on workshop will show you how to use industry tools that hackers and cybersecurity professionals use to break into and test computer systems.

The girls used a variety of tools to track a hacker from Wireshark to Nmap to QuickStego, all of which can be downloaded free of charge.

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers for making this event a success!
