GenCyber Camp @ NDSU

North Dakota State University(NDSU) along with Dakota State University(DSU) will be offering North Dakota's first residential GenCyber Camp (building on our non-residential camp last summer) for 55 rising high school freshmen through seniors. This weeklong residential camp will be held from June 24-28, 2019 on the NDSU campus in Fargo. This camp is funded and sponsored by the National Security Agency (NSA) and National Science Foundation (NSF). There is no fee for registration and attending this camp and free lodging, breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks will be provided to the participants during the camp.

The goal of this camp is for students to learn programming, how networks and the Internet works, and how cybersecurity is deeply interwoven into our everyday lives. Our camp curriculum will cover three core areas: programming, networking, and cybersecurity. All students will participate in each of the core areas (mornings) and will have the opportunity to choose and explore new areas with elective sessions (afternoon).

All students attending the camp will receive a free Raspberry Pi and any other necessary hardware/software to participate in the core and elective sessions. The Raspberry Pi gives students a platform to work with hands-on programming, security, and networking activities. In addition, since students get to take their Raspberry Pi home, this will give them the opportunity and means to continue exploring and developing after the camp.

Interested students can register here: Pre-registration Form.

We will begin processing registration applications after May 1st, 2019 and any new registrants after this will be considered on a rolling basis. Selected students will be contacted by email with information on full registration and other details.
