For the first time in 2020, the Matrix Challenge went not only regional but national too with over 65,000 young minds from all over the UK up against one another’s cyber skills. The Matrix Challenge is a free cyber competition for 11-17 years olds developed by Yorkshire & Humber Regional Crime Unit.
Qufaro has been honoured to support the event by awarding the National winners in each age group with the opportunity to engage with Qufaro’s Headstart in Cyber Security Course. Congratulations to Taha A, Adam O and Gethin B in the 11-14 age group and to Hannah S, Lorian R and Rhys D in the 15-17 age group.
Qufaro also awarded prizes to the Regional Matrix Challenge winners. Congratulations to the 11-14 age group Luke H, Rory HM, Mahfuz I and to the 15-17 age group winners; Daniel F, Michael N and Gabriel G. All regional winners won a place on the Qufaro Headstart in Cyber Security Course as well as a Raspberry Pi each.
Qufaro would like to thank everyone involved for all the hard work and time put into pulling off the 2020 Matrix Challenge and congratulate the winners and participants in completing such an exciting and challenging competition despite the extenuating circumstances thrown up by the pandemic.
