CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program created by the Air Force Association to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future. This course is open to 7th and 8th grade applicants and counts as their elective course. Members participate in various competitions throughout the year. Former members of our SMS team have gone on to successful student experiences at the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering.
The 2021-2022 Sparkman CyberPatriots Team placed first in the state of Alabama in their division, and was fourth in the nation upon their entry into the semifinals!
