The video above was produced to promote CyberDiscovery Camp which was originally organized at Louisiana Tech University. This year we're bringing it to PSU!
CyberDiscovery Camp is a week-long summer camp for high school teachers and students to explore the history, social and ethical issues, and technology involved in cyberspace security. The camp is lead by university faculty from engineering, computer science, math/cryptography, and the humanities and will engage students and teachers in hands-on/minds-on activities and discussions throughout the week.
PSU will select ten high school teams to participate in the 2014 CyberDiscovery Camp. Each high school team is led by two teachers: one in STEM and one in arts or humanities. Teachers select six students from their high school. Students must be entering their sophomore year of high school in the Fall of 2014.
The 2014 CyberDiscovery Camp takes place on Monday afternoon, July 7 through Saturday afternoon, July 12. Saturday includes several challenges and competitions that build on the week’s activities. The camp culminates in a luncheon and award ceremony for all participants – including parents and other invited guests.
