Cyber to the Top

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

2021 GenCyber Camp Schedule and Application

In 2021, Cyber to the Top will partner with Mississippi State University’s Bulldog Bytes program to offer day camps for elementary learners in the following locations. These camps are designed to broaden participation in computing and cybersecurity, and much of the focus will be on encouraging girls in these content areas. 

  • Columbus
  • Choctaw
  • Aberdeen
  • Hattiesburg

The project-based curriculum introduces students to a diverse set of computing professionals and enables them to learn:

  • cybersecurity awareness through hands-on independent and team modules,
  • digital forensics with hands on case study projects,
  • computational thinking skills using robots to learn computer programming, and
  • team-based problem solving, design, and implementation.

GenCyber is part of the solution to the nation's shortfall of skilled cybersecurity professionals. GenCyber camps are offered at no cost to participants. 

These camps are funded by the National Science Foundation/National Security Agency’s GenCyber program.
