Opportunity for USA high school students to participate in a summer program related to technology in Georgia. Students will be able to participate in this six-day residential program which includes virtual activities before and after the program. The program is intended to prepare students for a career in cybersecurity or cyber operations. The GenCyber Warrior Academy (GCWA) summer camp is a six-day, residential cyber academy for area high school students at the University of North Georgia’s (UNG) Dahlonega Campus.

The mission of the GCWA is to inspire the next generation of cyber operations and cybersecurity professionals in the north Georgia region. Housed at The Military College of Georgia and one of six Senior Military Colleges in the nation, UNG’s GCWA program will prepare students for military, federal service and civilian cybersecurity career paths with an emphasis on personal, organizational and national cybersecurity awareness and ethical cyber operations training in a six-day, residential cyber camp plus pre-camp and post-camp virtual/online activities.

The 2022 GenCyber program includes 30+ hours of residential, on-site instruction at the Dahlonega campus from June 5-11, 2022, plus 16-20 hours of pre-camp and post-camp virtual cyber enrichment activities, culminating with free attendance at the Hacker Halted 2022 conference in Atlanta in October. Students will participate in hands-on labs in learner-centered classrooms using the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) iLabs curriculum. The standards-based content will reinforce the six GenCyber Cybersecurity Concepts (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Thinking like an Adversary, Defense in Depth, and Keeping It Simple) through activities and lab exercises. In addition to lab exercises, students will participate in extension activities involving coding in Python, Drone programming, cryptography, 3D printing, car hacking and capture-the-flag and red-team/blue-team events.

The mix of mini-lectures, hands-on labs, mid-day get-up-and-move extension activities and evening team-building and CTF events will engage learners using multiple modalities. Daily scrum presentations, Q&A and student presentations of various hacking exercises and the GenCyber Cybersecurity Concepts will help students take active ownership of their learning experiences.

Daily physical activity and teambuilding are part of the program.
