The GenCyber summer camp at Savannah State University has the objective to introduce cybersecurity concepts (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Thinking like an Adversary, Defense in Depth, and Keeping it Simple) to middle school students from the Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools System, Bryan County Schools System and surrounding areas. The summer camp is a five-day program that will allow students to learn different cybersecurity/computer science concepts through multiple comprehensive hands-on activities and simulations. The GenCyber curriculum at SSU is designed to provide students awareness, interest, and knowledge in the growing field of Cybersecurity and Computer Science. The summer camp is at NOT COST to all participants. One of our focus is to target the under-represented and female students in the Savannah, Richmond Hill and/or nearby towns. Students are not required to have any prior knowledge or experience in cybersecurity, computer science or computers. During the camp sessions, students will learn robotics, programming, cryptography, cyber ethics, social engineering, footprinting and many other interesting topics in today's technology.
