GenCyber summer camp 2016

Camp information:

MVCC is offering free GenCyber Summer Camps again this year — but this time, there are two options, a Combination Camp and an Advanced Camp. These camps are designed to educate high school students in grades 9-12 and teachers on the rapidly growing field of Cybersecurity — both nationally and here in the Utica/Rome area!

GenCyber participants will apply what they have learned to complete a capstone project that challenges them to either defend a computer system from attack or conduct a cybersecurity forensics investigation.

Teachers who would like to broaden their knowledge in the field of cybersecurity and work side-by-side with students as they complete cybersecurity exercises are encouraged to attend. Teachers will assemble a basic cybersecurity workstation to bring to their classroom to continue the learning process. Teachers who attend the camp in its entirety will be provided a stipend. The camps are funded by the National Security Agency and are free of charge to all participants.

Both camps will begin on August 14, and will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Combination Camp

This one-week camp is filled with hands-on activities and laboratory exercises to introduce new students and teachers to the cybersecurity field. This camp is for first-time GenCyber participants who are interested in the field of cybersecurity. To register for the combination camp please call 315-792-5300.

Advanced Camp

This two-week camp is designed to expand the knowledge of students in grades 9-12 who attended last year’s GenCyber Summer Camp. Seats are very limited for this specialized camp, so apply today! please complete the webform to register for the advanced camp.
