Through the Cyber Warrior Platform, students and classes compete to earn points based on their gameplay, streaming, social media sharing, and video survey completion. This platform not only allows students to hone their skills but also facilitates connections with businesses seeking specific talents. Some may think that Esports is heavily focused on gaming, but platforms such as Cyber Warrior allow students to learn the ins and outs of cybersecurity while playing with artificial intelligence.
