Cybersecurity is exciting at GenCyber Camp! This summer hundreds of young people and teachers across the nation will get an introduction to cybersecurity; understand how to stay safe online; learn basic computer networking basics and how to secure data; experiment with programing, cryptography, and ethical hacking; and see career options they may consider in computer science and cybersecurity. And, it’s FREE.
At GenCyber camps, students will learn through hands-on computer activities how professional cybersecurity experts “harden” information systems to protect them from the threat of unauthorized access, misuse, and destruction. The camps are designed to be age appropriate for elementary, middle-school, and high school ages. The 5-year-old GenCyber program also includes teacher camps, designed for K–12 teachers interested in learning about computer and cybersecurity tools and concepts, and combination programs for students and teachers.
