GenCyber is a nation-wide grant program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Security Agency (NSA). With the intent of building excitement and awareness of this important field, GenCyber provides funding to programs so that they can introduce middle and high students and their teachers to the field of cyber security.

Summary Picture

The School of Information Technology was awarded a GenCyber grant to create and host a GenCyber Camp in the Summer of 2019.  There is a one week camp for high school teachers to learn the fundamentals of cyber security.  

The camp will be hosted in the College of Education, Criminal Justice and Human Services.  It is a weekday camp operating from June 3 - 7 Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm.

Working Together

This project has a wide reaching impact on High School Teachers and aligns with other IT education initiatives. Teachers from any high school are welcome to apply for the camp.  The camp is delivered at no charge to the teachers.  

We will accept up to 20 high school teachers into the camp in 2019.

For a successful project, we rely on the support of the IT community, educators, and businesses.  We would love to have volunteers in the areas of education, IT, and community outreach.  We also want your feedback and ideas.
