GenCyber Summer Camp 2018 Highlights
GenCyber is a national initiative that is supported by the National Science Foundation and the National Security Agency. This program has the following objectives:
Under the leadership of Dr. Waleed Farag, grant PI, IUP, along with a selected group of national universities, has again been awarded funding for three years in a row to run the GenCyber program in summer 2018. Our combination camp is open to middle and
high school students and teachers. The prospective camp will address essential security concepts in an interesting, novel, and multidisciplinary approach to foster interest in cybersecurity among middle and high school students and teachers in western
This project will host one free (no cost to participants), five-weekday day camp in summer 2018. Instruction will be delivered by a team of professors with numerous backgrounds but established expertise in cybersecurity teaching and research.
The combined camp will provide a uniformly distributed, engaging blend of delivery that includes direct instruction, group activities, structured discovery, and hands-on, laboratory, and informal instructional techniques to both individual and combined
cohorts. Upon completion of the camp, participants will have a strong understanding of cybersecurity in addition to mastering basic skills that help them be safer online. Teachers participating are eligible to earn Act 48 continuing education credits.
