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 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 held our 2 teacher camps at the Advanced Manufacturing Training Center, on the Scott Park campus of the University of Toledo. 39 teachers were introduced to computing concepts including wired/wireless networking, operating systems, preventing cyberbullying, coding and jobs in Cybersecurity.
