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 provides 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) has been awarded a GenCyber grant from the NSA and NSF, to create and host 2 week-long camps for school teachers (any grade level) to learn the fundamentals of cyber security. The college was previously awarded a GenCyber grant in Summer 2018.
We have been awarded funding to hold 2 Teacher camps in summer 2019. The first will be the week of June 10 and the second, will be the week of June 17. The camp will be held at the Advanced Manufacturing Training Center, on the Scott Park campus of the University of Toledo. It is a weekday camp operating from Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 3:30 pm.
