AFA CyberCamps Begin June 5th
AFA’s CyberPatriot program will have 106 CyberCamp hosts across 160 campsites in 34 states and the Virgin Islands this summer, a 20 percent increase from 2016. CyberCamps give students the opportunity to learn about topics in STEM regardless of their previous knowledge, experience or education in cybersecurity.
AFA CyberCamp hosts receive software and hands-on curriculum kits designed to teach students cyber safety, cyber ethics, and critical network security skills and tools. Each AFA CyberCamp will culminate in an exciting team-based competition that puts the campers in the role of IT administrators tasked with finding and addressing cybersecurity vulnerabilities in simulated network environments. 2017 CyberCamps begin June 5th and run through August 4th.
