The Capture the Flag, hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory (MAGIC) in Westminster, Maryland, is a biannual ethical hacking cybersecurity competition designed to foster students’ interest in cybersecurity, provide them with a platform to develop new skills, and prepare them for careers in technology through experiential learning. The competition has encouraged real growth in our students, and it can do the same in your community.
