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 Professor Waleed Farag, IUP, along with a select group of national universities, has been awarded funding to run the GenCyber program in the summer of 2020 (see the notice below regarding the impact of COVID-19 on our original plan). Farag is the principal investigator for the grant, which has been awarded to IUP for five years in a row.
This year, the camp is open to middle and high school students. It will address essential security concepts with an interesting, novel approach to strengthen interest in cybersecurity among middle and high school students in western Pennsylvania.
This project will host one free (no cost to participants), five-weekday day-camp in summer 2020. Instruction will be delivered by a team of professors with varied backgrounds who have established expertise in cybersecurity teaching and research.
The camp will provide engaging instruction, group activities, structured discovery, hands-on laboratory experiences, and informal instruction to both individual and combined groups of students. Upon completion of the camp, participants will have a strong
understanding of cybersecurity in addition to mastering basic skills that can help them be safer online.
Camp Dates: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all GenCyber camps nationwide will not be held in summer 2020 and will be moved to summer 2021. Camp details will be announced later on.
Online ApplicationInformation about the application process will be posted when available. Generally, to be eligible to apply, students must be entering seventh grade or higher in the immediate fall term after the camp.
