Recently, a group of high school women spent three weeks as participants in the Computer Science for Cyber Security (CS4CS) program, picking up fundamentals at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. Nearly 50 students attended classes at the downtown campus of the university, where they learned about programming, computer architecture, careers in computer science and cybersecurity and how to do professional networking. Now they're expected to return to their schools and serve as "computer science and cybersecurity ambassadors" and recruit a team of classmates to compete in Cyber Security Awareness Week, Tandon's annual cybersecurity competition.
