Summer Camps with a Difference!
Are you a high school student making plans for your summer? How would you like to spend part of that time learning how to detect cyberattacks and foil those who try to carry them out?
Alternately, would you like to learn coding skills and build the foundations for becoming a successful programmer?
This summer, Capitol Technology University is offering two week-long camp experience for high schoolers in grades 9-12 with an interest in either cybersecurity or programming. Both camps will be held on the Capitol campus in Laurel, MD. During these unique camps, you'll learn skills that will give you a strong start in two of today's most in-demand fields. You'll have fun and make friends along the way.
The Capitol Cyber Challenge features a variety of exciting. informative activities, including scavenger hunts and other cyber games; training in computer forensics; coding and scripting with Python and other languages; creating software robots; and working with 3D printers.
It's perfect both for students who are interested in cybersecurity but don't know much about it, and also for those who have had some cybersecurity experience during high school and want to increase their knowledge base. Instructor: Rick Hansen. Cost: $350. Click for details.
