MVCC is offering free GenCyber Summer Camps again this year — there are two options, a Beginner Camp and an Advanced Camp. These camps are designed to educate high school students in grades 9-12 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.
Students who would like to broaden their knowledge in the field of cybersecurity through the completion of labs and other cybersecurity-related exercises are encouraged to attend. The camps are funded by the National Security Agency and are free of charge to all participants.
Both camps will begin in July, and will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Beginner Camp: July 16-20
This one-week camp is filled with hands-on activities and laboratory exercises to introduce new students to the cybersecurity field. This camp is for first-time GenCyber participants who are interested in the field of cybersecurity. To register for this camp, please call 315-792-5300.
Advanced Camp: July 23-27
This one-week camp is designed to expand the knowledge of students in grades 9-12 who attended last year’s GenCyber Summer Camp as well as students who are already familiar with Cybersecurity. Seats are very limited for this specialized camp, so apply today!
For more information on registration, please call 315-792-5300.
