In addition to playing Cyber Feud, visitors to the SOeC booth at last week’s San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering also had the opportunity to learn more about SOeC’s mission and activities.
Those visitors who signed up to learn more were eligible for a drawing for a prize bundle and we are delighted to announce the winner: Gary D. of San Diego, seen here with Liz Fraumann, Executive Director of Securing Our eCity Foundation (on Gary’s left) and Pamela Richardson, Securing Our eCity Administrator (on Gary’s right).
That sharp-looking SOeC backpack in the middle is also a rollerbag and is stuffed with cyber security goodies.
On a sunny Saturday in San Diego the crowds turned out in their thousands at PETCO Park to explore science exhibits at the San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering. Securing Our eCity was there, as a sponsor and as an exhibitor, raising cyber security awareness with the very popular Cyber Feud game. Here you can see a session in progress, led by ESET’s Brent Curry, closely watched by a crowd of onlookers.
Some 280 people participated in the game, competing for prizes by answering cyber security questions. Many more observed from the sidelines.
The event was a great opportunity to spread the word about Securing Our eCity and numerous requests for follow-up contact were received. As you can see, there was no shortage of attendees, which bodes well for the future of science and engineering and STEM education in San Diego.
Securing Our eCity also participated in other events during the week-long San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering. On Tuesday, SOeC volunteer Stephen Cobb gave a talk about privacy and social media as part of Science speed Round on the campus of UC San Diego.
