2020 Summer Cybercamps Highlights
“Typically in person, this year’s CyberCamp went virtual due to stay at home orders in response to COVID-19, with each student, teacher, and Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific (NIWC Pacific) volunteer working through the five-day camp remotely, June 15 – 19” – Read entire Defense Visual Information Distribution Service article HERE
The Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) Cybercamps are an outcome of our partnership with the National Youth Cyber Education Program created by the Air Force Association (AFA) and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR).
SUHSD Cybercamps are based on AFA Cyberpatriot platform. CyberPatriot is a program to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity, and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future.
The SUHSD cybercamps are designed to excite students about cybersecurity, STEM career opportunities, and teach them important cyber defense skills through hands-on instruction and activities. Through the cybercamp, students will learn how to protect their personal devices and information from outside threats, as well as how to harden entire networks running Windows 7 and Ubuntu operating systems.
The cybercamp culminates in an exciting final team competition that simulates real cybersecurity situations faced by industry professionals and mimics AFA’s CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Defense Competition.
