Sophia Armstrong , a computer science major at East Carolina University, provided an overview of BigchainDB in her Lightning Talk, "Blockchain database for a cybersecurity learning environment," at All Things Open 2018 , October 23 in Raleigh, NC.
Sophia's project, which is funded by a National Science Foundation grant, gives students a hands-on, game-based experience to learn about cybersecurity. Her team uses BigchainDB, an open source blockchain database, behind the firewall to securely store the data they collect.

I am a senior at East Carolina University and I am super excited to be graduating in May 2019. I am currently a part of two research projects where I am researching strategies to improve the current computer science pedagogy, as well as developing a web-based user interface for a game-based cyber security learning system.
