What are COD GenCyber Student Camps?
This camp targeted students entering grades 7 to 12 who are interested in exploring the field of cybersecurity. Students were placed in one of two groups based on age, with activities designed specifically for each group. COD faculty from CIT and HSTI guided students through hands-on activities using current technologies, introduced the concept of digital citizenship and taught online safety information. Attendees received a Raspberry Pi and a take home bag with camp related items. Light continental breakfast, lunch and snacks were provided each day.
Interested students submitted applications and camp participants were selected through a lottery process.
These camps were generously funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation
and National Security Agency and is offered at no cost to participants.
