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.”
