The Ambassador High School Hack Team tinkers with computers to learn more about how they work and how we can use them more effectively and in unexpected ways. They meet year-round to prepare for two computer competitions. The first competition, called Cyber Patriot, defensive competition. In Cyber Patriot the Hack Team tries to fix various problems with the computers (such as viruses or intruders). The second competition is HSCTF (High School Capture the Flag), a offensive competition. In HSCTF the Hack Team solves algorithms, cracks codes, reverse engineer complex programs, and solve other assorted computer science related problems.
