The program, funded by grants from the National Security Agency and National Science Foundation, is open to local high school sophomores, juniors and seniors.
Attendees will engage in hands-on cybersecurity training activities, such as programming a Raspberry Pi computer, and meet with nationally renowned industry experts. Students will also receive a free Raspberry Pi computer, keyboard and mouse to continue their training at the completion of the camp.
The program is led by faculty from Brookdale and Red Bank Regional High School.
There is no cost to apply or attend, and applicants are not required to have any prior cybersecurity or computer programming experience. Students of all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
“Students will get a firm foundation in the vital, growing field of cybersecurity and develop valuable skills that will continue to serve them for years to come.”
