WILMINGTON — Wilmington High School students enrolled in Project Lead the Way, a satellite engineering program of the Great Oaks Career Campuses, recently attended the Converge Tour held at the University of Cincinnati.

Students participated in a panel discussion led by CISO of Fifth Third Bank; the Center for Cyber Intelligence, CIA; Cincinnati Cyber Squad, FBI; GE Aviation; and Vantiv where they learned about education and career opportunities available in the cybersecurity industry.

Students were also afforded the opportunity to participate in an online simulation that provided an opportunity to learn more about the emerging and in-demand field of technology.
