GenCyber Summer Teacher Camp




The NSA has awarded Cal Poly a GenCyber grant for providing a middle/high school teacher workshop in cybersecurity. Using a hands-on, learn-by-doing approach, teachers will learn the fundamentals of cybersecurity, including digital identity, web security, secret communication and computer forensics. Special emphasis will be placed on helping teachers integrate their computer security material into their lessons at their school. Only basic computer literacy is assumed. Attendees must have access to a computer with at least 4 GB of RAM and a high-speed internet connection. 

The course will have three virtual Fridays in preparation for the 1-week workshop. The virtual Fridays are July 14, 21, and 28, between the hours of 8:30 AM and 3 PM. The face-to-face workshop will take place at Cal Poly on Monday-Friday, July 31 to August 4 between the hours of 8:30 and 4:30 PM. Class will be held in Building 192, Room 206.
