DSU hosting GenCyber summer camps this month

Dakota State University in Madison is hosting several different GenCyber summer camp events this month for students and teachers.  The camps are aimed at teaching those who attend to “learn, hack, fix, and explore cyber security”.

This week is the 4th annual DSU GenCyber Teacher Camp.  It’s a camp designed for 6th through 12th grade STEM teachers.  The camp’s main purpose is to educate and excite middle and high school STEM teachers and help them to incorporate cyber security in the classroom.  The more than 50 campers this year are from South Dakota, Iowa, Louisiana, North Carolina, Texas, and Florida.

Next week is the DSU GenCyber camp, which is designed for high school students entering grades 10 through 12.  225 students are scheduled to attend this camp from all over the country. It is the nation’s largest residential GenCyber Camp.

The week of June 23rd is the Girls CybHER camp at DSU.  

Funding for all the camps is provided jointly by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation.
