The Mid-Columbia STEM Education Collaboratory organized the CyberPatriot Camp. Delta High School, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), Columbia Basin College and other Collaboratory members teamed up as part of the “Computing the Future” project. Rising middle- and high-school students, educators and industry professionals were also in the mix.
The core curriculum and program design for this camp comes from the Air Force Association CyberPatriot Camp Program and was supplemented with Cryptography, cyber forensics and more, led by cybersecurity experts from PNNL. This week-long cyber security camp was held Monday, June 27 through Friday, July 1, at Delta High School in Pasco.
The camp was free of charge and lunch was provided. This cyber security camp gave local middle- and high-school students an opportunity to learn about cyber security and get valuable hands-on experience working with experts in this rapidly growing and increasingly critical career field. Those from underrepresented populations were strongly encouraged to attend. See our photo album on Facebook.
