Gannon University and CyberPatriot will host a cybersecurity camp June 21-24 for high school students interested in learning what the cyber industry is all about. It will be hosted in the Gannon's Institute for Health and Cyber Knowledge (I-HACK) building on campus.

CyberPatriot is a National Youth Cyber Education Program, founded by the Air Force Association (AFA), aimed at inspiring students toward careers in cybersecurity or other STEM disciplines critical to our nation’s future. The program features the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition, AFA CyberCamps, Elementary School Cyber Education Initiative and Literature Series, all targeted for high school and middle school students as well as CyberGenerations targeting senior citizens.

During this four-day standard camp session, students will be taught essential cyber safety and cybersecurity principles that are highly relevant for protecting devices and information from the ever-growing rampant cyber threats.

Instructions and hands-on lab sessions will be provided by Gannon's cybersecurity faculty experts. Students will also have an opportunity to interact with fellow peers and professors directly to ask questions and receive guidance about cybersecurity careers.

This camp runs from Tuesday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Check in will be Tuesday, June 21 beginning at 8 a.m.

Students will be provided with lunch, workbooks, and a CyberPatriot T-Shirt.
