MVCC offering free GenCyber Camps for high school students

Jun 22, 2018

Marketing and Communications

Mohawk Valley Community College once again will host free GenCyber Summer Camps for high school students, funded by the National Security Agency. The camps begin in July and run Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

These award-winning summer camps are designed to introduce local high school students to the rapidly growing field of cybersecurity and expand the knowledge of students already familiar with the industry. The camp options are:

Beginner Camp: Offered July 16-20, this camp is filled with hands-on activities and laboratory exercises to introduce students to the cybersecurity field. It is designed for first-time GenCyber students entering ninth through 12th grade who are interested in learning about cybersecurity.

Advanced Camp: Offered July 23-27, the Advanced Camp is designed to expand the knowledge of returning GenCyber students (or those already familiar with cybersecurity) who 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. Seats are very limited for this camp.
