This summer on the Dartmouth College campus, the Institute for Security,Technology, and Society (ISTS) is offering TWO summer programs for high school students interested in cybersecurity and privacy. Funded by the NSF/NSA joint GenCyber program and Dartmouth College, these programs will explore current interdisciplinary research in cybersecurity and privacy.
The INTRODUCTORY program (July 9th through July 13th, 9 am - 3 pm) will focus on cryptography, digital forensics, privacy, and security awareness. Lessons will integrate lectures with interactive activities, augmented with field trips and guest speakers.
The ADVANCED program (July 30th through August 3rd, 9 am - 3 pm) will expand from the base that was laid by the introductory course and will appeal to those with a solid understanding of basic cybersecurity concepts who are looking to expand their knowledge.
There is no charge -- this community outreach program is generously funded by Dartmouth College and the GenCyber program, a partnership between the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation to help young people learn about cybersecurity and how skills in that area can pay off for them in the future: http://www.gen-cyber.com/
These programs are non-residential. *Please also note that students may apply to one or the other program, not both.
Per GenCyber regulations, program participants must be United States residents and be enrolled in a United States high school or be home-schooled.
The deadline to submit applications and teacher recommendations is April 15, 2018.
