In a night dedicated to cybersecurity at Bridgewater-Raritan High School, Cybernight unfolded as a showcase of student-driven presentations and interactive trifold displays. Held on June 4, the night played host to informative sessions on the subtopics within cybersecurity. 

The CyBR Hacks Club is a extracurricular involvement taking place at the high school and is dedicated to teaching students about cybersecurity through various meetings and challenges throughout the year.

Students from the CyBR Hacks club presented talks and trifold presentations on various cybersecurity topics. The trifolds served as a dynamic backdrop, enhancing the overall educational atmosphere of the event. Topics covered were password protection, phone privacy, network analysis and steganography. 

In preparation for the event, students were assigned to a project on an application basis. Students who were selected worked hard to make an engaging presentation. The event not only tested students presentations but their public speaking skills while talking to many people throughout the night.

As attendees navigated through the displays, they engaged in conversations with the student presenters, gaining firsthand insights into the thought processes behind each project. The trifold presentations not only showcased the depth of understanding among the students but also their ability to communicate complex cybersecurity concepts effectively to the audience. 

At the end, children played a Kahoot summarizing their knowledge of what they learned. They also participated in a cybersecurity challenge on a site called PicoCTF. Prizes were awarded to winners.

CyBR Hacks officer, Arnav Dedhia shared his thoughts about the event.

“The event went pretty well,” he said. “The creativity of the presenters within our club really showed and I am proud of the turnout overall. We will definitely be doing this next year, as Cybersecurity awareness is a really important part of today’s technologically advanced society.”

The full officer board of the event consisted of leaders Arnav Dedhia and Navneet Kalatheeswaran and general officers Bryan Zou, Pranav Fnu, Luvya Manche, Kush Dave, Shamar RSM, Romir Dedhia and Divyansha Nashine.

The club advisor, Dr. Carrie Feeney, also greatly helped facilitate the logistics of the event, according to its officers.

CyBR Hacks hopes to be the host to more events like this throughout the upcoming year and looks to further enhance the club experience for its 100 members.
