Summer Program for incoming 9-12th graders

Cabrillo College is offering a free Cyber Camp for high school students this summer!

This career exploration opportunity has been offered at sites across the country for 10 years, and we are thrilled to offer for the first time in our community. The camp is a free, week-long camp for students entering 9-12 grades in the fall.

We are encouraging boys and girls to sign up even if they have little to no experience in Computer Science or Computer Information Systems. Please see that Cabrillo Cyber Camp Flyer formore information.

WHAT IS CYBERPATRIOT?

CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program. At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services in a six hour period. Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Baltimore, MD for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.
