Cyber Discovery

The video above was produced to promote CyberDiscovery Camp which was originally organized at Louisiana Tech University. This year we are hosting our second annual Cyber Discovery Camp at PSU!

Cyber Discovery 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 led 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.

In the Summer of 2015, PSU will be hosting our second annual Cyber Discovery Camp. And Portland State University faculty members will be teaching the camp for the first time, with guidance from the faculty team from the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center who developed the program. We are accepting applications and have space for ten high school teams to participate in the 2015 Cyber Discovery Camp. Each high school team must be led by two teachers: one in STEM and one in arts, humanities or liberal arts. The two teachers select six students from their high school. Students must be entering their sophomore year of high school in the Fall of 2015.

The 2015 Cyber Discovery Camp takes place on Monday afternoon, July 6 through Saturday afternoon, July 11. The camp culminates on Saturday with several final competitions followed by a luncheon and award ceremony for all participants as well as parents and other invited guests.
