RIC GenCyber is the first and only GenCyber camp in Rhode Island. Since it is fully sponsored by the NSA and NSF, it is free of charge. We will meet between 8:30-4:30 on July 8-12, 2019. To attend the camp, you must commit to being on campus during this time. Campers must provide their own transportation to and from camp and must commit to being on-time. Bus tickets are also available free of charge. Breakfast, lunch and other goodies will be provided. This year we have chosen the following topics:

  • Staying Safe Online/Cyberbullying
  • Cryptography
  • Steganography
  • Virtual Environments
  • Building Raspberry PIs
  • Learning Python
  • Binary/Hexidecimal

Each lesson has something for everyone. We offer a combination of individual, pair/small group and whole class instruction. We offer a combination of hands-on activities and unplugged computer activities that students enjoy.
