High School students invited to apply to free TWU/AFA CyberCamp


DENTON — Students entering 9-12 grades in the fall are invited to apply to participate in the Texas Woman’s University and Air Force Association (AFA) free TWU/AFA CyberCamp, which will take place on the TWU Denton campus July 13-17, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day.

The camp is free to accepted participants, who must apply to the program by May 15. There will be two concurrent sessions of the camp – one session will be female only, and the other session will be a mixed gender. Female applicants should indicate their preference for either session on the application form.

Only 18 will be selected to participate in each camp for a total of 36 campers, so those interested are encouraged to apply now. For more information or to apply, visit or contact Dr. Jian Zhang, TWU associate professor of mathematics and computer science, by email at

Developed by the AFA and sponsored by the TWU Office of Technology, the TWU/AFA CyberCamp is targeted toward beginners in cybersecurity. No previous experience or training is required. The camp will emphasize fun, hands-on learning of cybersecurity principles that are relevant and applicable to everyday life. Each day of camp will cover new topics and activities, building up to a final team competition simulating real cybersecurity situations faced by industry professionals.
