GenCyber summer camp for high school STEM teachers set for June 14-18

Marshall University’s Department of Computer Sciences and Electrical Engineering will host the Virtual Adventure Zone Teacher Academy Summer Camp June 14-18 for high school STEM teachers.

The free, online camp will be offered with support from a GenCyber summer camp grant from the National Science Foundation and National Security Agency. Participants will receive a $1,250 stipend for attendance and meal support, and will receive free materials to use in the camp.

They can learn to integrate cyber subjects into high school courses and engage in hands-on exploration of cyber security, including ethics, networks, phishing, social engineering and robotics systems.

Participants also will earn a graduate-level professional development course credit from Marshall University.
