Term 4 Professional Learning

Cyber Taipan

CyberTaipan is an Australian youth cyber defence competition. Throughout the competition rounds, teams of students are provided with a set of virtual images that represent different operating systems. Teams receive points for finding and fixing cyber security vulnerabilities, strengthening systems, and maintaining critical services. Teams compete for a chance to represent their school or community group in the CyberTaipan National Final. CyberTaipan is open to high school-aged students with an interest in — or willingness to learn about — cyber security, defensive countermeasures and securing virtual networks.


Bebras is an international initiative aiming to promote Computer Science among school students at all ages. The Bebras challenge is open twice a year to Australian Students in Years 3-12, and engages students' computational thinking and problem solving skills in a fun, interactive environment. Last year, across Australia, over 54 thousand students took part in the challenge. Bonus!! There are a large number of printable and online resources you can use with students throughout the year to help develop their computational thinking skills. Find out more on the Digital Careers website.
