IT Students Day of CYBER
For almost two decades, Nassau Community College hosts the Yes 2
Mathematics (Y2M) program to help high school student see the
applications of Mathematics in the real world.
This years Y2M theme was Cybersecurity and Data Analysis. For half the
day, the group of high school students had an opportunity to participate
in the NSA's Day of Cyber. During this workshop, different STEM careers
within the field of cybersecurity were discussed. Students had a chance
to live a day in the life of a NSA agent.
The other half of the day was spent attending seminars connecting data
analysis to marathon training, online payment systems, and biometric
data. Midway through the day, all students participated in a 30 minute
math contest assessing all levels of mathematics. Island Trees students
had an opportunity to work cooperatively with students from Bethpage and
Connetquot school districts.
Congrats to Robert Ragusa (11th grade) and Chris Huang (9th grade) who
won silver this year.
