UNT GenCyber Summer Program

The UNT Computer Science and Engineering Department will be hosting a number of summer cybersecurity programs to introduce young women and young men in 8th -12th grades to cybersecurity. The goal of the summer camps is to help students understand correct and safe on-line behavior, increase diversity and interest in cybersecurity and careers in the cybersecurity workforce of the Nation.

The curriculum for each camp will include the 10 GenCyber First Principles, and a wide variety of cybersecurity topics offered through various instructional tools and methods (e.g., hands-on activities, gamification, etc.) to keep the curriculum fun, engaging, and effective.

The one week day camp includes lunch and snacks each day. Please refer to the table below.

Registration will open April 24th at 5:00 PM CDT and will continue until all camps are full. Seats are available on a first-come first-served basis.
