Students entering seventh grade or higher in fall 2019 are eligible for the 2019 GenCyber Camp at IUP June 24 through 28.

This free camp, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation and the National Security Agency, is directed by Waleed Farag, director of IUP’s Institute for Cyber Security and professor of computer science.

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; students in the camp will receive a Droid Inventor Kit to take home. Lunch and a snack will be provided as part of the program.

Space is limited; application deadline is May 3.

IUP is the only school in western Pennsylvania that is part of this initiative; IUP has received almost $320,000 for the GenCyber program over the past four years.
