Spring Camp for motivated 9th to 12th grade students

NW CyberCamp’s response to COVID Pandemic:

With the uncertainty of school campuses opening this spring, our Spring Camp in April will be delivered virtually.

As COVID-19 vaccinations and precautions begin lowering the risk for infection, in-person camps may be possible for the summer and fall camps. The camps will follow the set COVID protocols such as limit in size, social distancing, and any other health guidelines and government regulations based on coronavirus pandemic requirements.

SPRING CAMP DESCRIPTION:

Interested in learning more about the exciting field of Cybersecurity? Then join us for a two-Saturday Cyber Camp. No previous experience is required! Students will be taught all of the skills they need to participate. This camp focuses on the skills surrounding Password Cracking! Students will learn what makes good passwords, how they are stored and secured, and even how to crack passwords.

Students will participate in two cyber competitions:

  • The first will focus on student’s individual ability to solve password-related challenges;
  • The second will then focus on student’s abilities to work as a team and solve even tougher challenges!

While the actual cost of the competition is $150, sponsors have provided funds to reduce the camp cost for all participants. Therefore, an automatic $100 discount will be applied at the time of registration for all participants.

NOTE: This camp will cover different topics than taught in the fall camp, so all fall camp students are welcome as well.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY

“It’s an incredible opportunity to either dive into cybersecurity for the first time, or rapidly expand your knowledge even with prior knowledge”

“Before attending NW Cyber Camp, I didn’t know about the dangers of technology and the need for future cybersecurity. Now, I am able to secure my settings to ensure my privacy, and I am much more mindful of thinking before I click. I feel very confident in the skills that I have learned this week, and I am able to apply them in order to protect my information. I am also very interested in the work of Cyber Security, and I now consider it as a possible career option.”

“This camp really changed how I thought about cybersecurity. It made me realize how many components there are and a lot of different things I can do with it. I learned so much and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.”

“This camp is amazing. You do not need to know anything about cybersecurity to do this camp. Everyone should do this camp so they can make their computers more secure.”

“The NW Cyber Camp provides the kind of education that you don’t see anywhere else at the middle and high school level.”

“The guest speakers, instructors, and software were professional quality. This really raises the experience of the camp.”

“Preparation for the jobs of tomorrow.”
