GenCyber Camp 2018

 

GenCyber is a nation-wide grant program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Security Agency (NSA). With the intent of building excitement and awareness of this important field, GenCyber provided funding to colleges, so they can introduce K-12 students, and teachers to the field of cyber security.

Northwest State Community College (located in Archbold and Toledo, Ohio) was awarded a GenCyber grant to create and host a GenCyber Camp in the Summer of 2018. There is a one week camp for school teachers (any grade level) to learn the fundamentals of cyber security.

We are applying to hold both a level 1 and level 2 camp in summer 2019. If you are interested in either one of those camps, should we get funding, please email GenCyber@northweststate.edu
