Intermediate CyberSTEM Camp

Summary

The Intermediate CyberSTEM camp is a one-week commuter summer program at the University of Maryland, College Park for high school (incoming 9th and 10th grade) girls who are interested in the growing field of cybersecurity. This 5 day experience provides hands-on activities focused on STEM and cybersecurity topics. Attendees will learn and apply basic concepts of programming, computer forensics, cryptography, steganography, system vulnerabilities and program management from a series of gaming, modeling, simulation activities and hands-on exercises, which explore the interconnections of science, math, technology, and computers. Participants did NOT need to attend our middle school camp in order to be eligible. This camp covers similar content areas as CyberSTEM camp for 7th and 8th graders, and allows for a deeper and more in-depth exploration of the subject matter.

Goal

The goal is to allow young women to explore and apply various topics within the STEM and cybersecurity fields by linking research to practice through hands-on experience.
