Cybersecurity Ambassadors!


58 students and 35 teachers participated in the GenCyber Camps at Michigan Tech University this summer to learn about cybersecurity. GenCyber was made possible by a grant awarded to Dr. Yu Cai from the College of Computing. REMC1 and the Western MiSTEM Networks were partners and assisted with the two, week-long camps. Highlights from the camps can be viewed on the GenCyber Teacher Camp 2022 and Student Highlight videos.

Dr. Yu Cai was awarded funding to offer a teacher camp for the summer of 2023! Learn more at www.mtu.edu/gencyber.
