Inspiring the Next Generation of Cyber Stars

Cyber to the Top is our K-12 outreach program that provides summer camp and other co-curricular activities.

By engaging our youth with safe and fun active learning activities in computing and cybersecurity, we believe we can widen and diversity the pipeline of technical talent in the United States.

GenCyber Camp

Applications are invited to apply to the summer 2024 GenCyber residential camps focusing on cybersecurity career paths. Each camp will provide hands-on learning activities that will allow participants to learn cybersecurity vulnerabilities, cyber defense, cybercrime and ethics, and how safe online behavior is crucial to our national security. Participants will learn from cybersecurity faculty, industry, and military professionals.
