Game-based Space and Cybersecurity Skills Development
The Space Grand Challenge (SGC) is a global cybersecurity virtual game-based capture the flag (CTF) competition for middle and high school students; designed to expand access to technology career pathways and help businesses address their cybersecurity skills gaps by developing interest and knowledge among middle and high school students. The challenge allows middle and high school level cybersecurity competition teams to demonstrate their expertise, while encouraging the formation of new cybersecurity teams for future challenges. Designed and built by Cal Poly students, the platform leverages gamification to emulate real-world scenarios in an immersive environment. Additionally, the competition is broadcast live on Twitch as an eSports gaming event to engage public spectators and supporters directly. All schools across the globe are welcome to apply. Application considerations include both regional areas and team diversity. New competition teams and female teams are highly encouraged.
About the REDUX Event
The SGC REDUX is a replay event, leveraging Cal Poly's Mission Kolluxium Z-85-0 platform with all-new flags. The REDUX competition is designed to provide teams unable to participate in the last competition event (October 2022), with a second competitive opportunity, or another opportunity for teams who played previously to try a harder level or work to improve their previous score.
