DSU Develops Cyber Security Camp For High School Students
Next summer will bring a new kind of camp to South Dakota, one that not only features the time honored traditions of meeting new friends and staying up all night, but teaches campers the basics of cyber security. Dakota State was recently awarded a $100,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop and host a cyber security camp July 20-25, 2014, for students entering grades 10-12.
The camp is free of charge to participants and is focused on the Cyber Operations program at DSU, which is the only undergrad program in the nation to earn the Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations designation by the National Security Agency (NSA). Around 100 students will go through hands-on educational sessions with DSU professors and current students, while staying on-campus for the week. Students do not need any prior background or experience in security or computers to attend, and the camp will be free to the students.
