A cyber security challenge for young people across the United Kingdom
The MAtrix Challenge 2020 is going national
Following on from the success of 2018 and 2019, the Matrix Challenge 2020 will be a national competition open to all 11 to 17 year olds across the United Kingdom.
The Matrix Challenge is an innovative cyber competition, designed and delivered by the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Cyber Crime Unit in partnership with our colleagues from the 11 regional organised crime units across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
MATRIX CHALLENGE IN A NUTSHELL
The Matrix Challenge qualification game will be live in January 2020 and will run for 6 weeks. The top entries in each region will be invited to a regional semi final. The top 3 competitors in each age category will then be selected for a grand final in July 2020 where top technology prizes and the chance to be crown Matrix Challenge UK Champion will be up for grabs.
