Our society's economic vitality and national security depend on a safe cyberspace and individual cybersecurity skills. TWU/AFA CyberCamp emphasizes fun, hands-on learning of cybersecurity principles that are relevant and applicable to everyday life. Developed by the Air Force Association (AFA), the camp curriculum covers new topics and hands-on activities each day, building up to an exciting, final team competition simulating real cybersecurity situations faced by industry professionals.
This year, we are offering two concurrent sessions: one session is female-only and the other is mixed gender. The female applicants should indicate their preference for either session on the application form.
Funding support for this year's program was provided by the TWU Office of Technology!
Dates and time:
July 13- July 17, 2015, 8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. (boarding is NOT provided)
TWU Denton Campus, Math and Computer Science Department, MCL building (room to be annouced)
Applicants to the summer camp should be entering grade 9-12 in the Fall of 2015. Since the AFA CyberCamp curriculum is designed to introduce students to core cybersecurity principles and tools, applicants should have little to no background in cybersecurity.
The application period is Feb. 16, 2015 - May 15, 2015. Each session's room limit is 18 students so apply early!
All completed applications will be reviewed. Applicants accepted by the program will be notified by email on or around June 1, 2015.
