Here is a snippet of what the boys face in the next stage:
“As a junior agent, you will have access to the beginner levels of two bases – the Headquarters base and the Moon base. The Headquarters base will see you tackle various cyber criminal gangs. You will have to gather information, crack codes, find security flaws and dissect a cyber criminals digital trail. The Moon base is where you’ll learn to program in Python. Using your own code editor, you will be able to execute and run your own code, gradually picking up all the skills you will need to write your own programs. “
