College hosting free summer cybersecurity camps on campus

Inver Hills will be hosting two GenCyber camps in summer 2017, one for high school students and one for high school teachers. The camps will provide a series of hands-on labs as well as field trips to a data center at a local company or firm, where participants can talk to cybersecurity engineers in the field.

GenCyber camps are open to all student and teacher participants at no cost. During the camps, participants will receive a Raspberry Pi computer, a powerful mini-PC they can use to continue their cybersecurity explorations after the camp experience concludes. Teachers assisting at the GenCyber student camp will receive a $1,000 stipend.
