On Saturday, Feb. 2, the computer science club arrived at the UNO College of Informational Science and Technology. They spent the next six hours competing in the 2019 NULLify Capture the Flag Competition.

MN brought two teams. While one took the gold, the other team placed sixth, beating five other teams.

Out of eleven teams, one of the teams named, “Mustrings2”, took the first place win. They scored an astonishing 3700 points. They beat a variety of schools, such as Millard West and Creighton Prep, who place second and third place, respectively.

The NULLify Competition is a fun-filled day where students test their cybersecurity knowledge. The students had to use their computer science in creative ways to find digital bugs left in the code. They played a Jeopardy-style game of Capture The Flag, except instead of actual flags, they were hypothetical computer “flags”.

The team spent the day utilizing their skills and making new friends.
