Creating Pathways for the Next Generation
Our Cybersecurity-Focused Student Activities
The National Security Agency created the GenCyber program to provide free summer cybersecurity camp experiences for high school students and teachers at no cost. RIC is a GenCyber camp host, and for many summers has provided rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a two-week learning experience aimed at inspiring entrance into the field of cybersecurity.
