GenCyber program is a national-level initiative by the National Security Agency (NSA) to provide summer cybersecurity camp experiences at the K-12 level. The program goals include raising cybersecurity awareness and career opportunities, and increasing student diversity in cybersecurity colleges. As part of the GenCyber program, VCU Cybersecurity Center and the College of Engineering will be organizing a one-week non-resident cybersecurity Bootcamp for the JROTC (Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps) middle and early high-school students of the greater Richmond area, Virginia. The camp will be held for 40 students at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Richmond. The duration of the camp will be five days. Each day will start at 9 a.m. and end at 3 p.m., consisting of several formal/informal student learning activities, including both non-technical and technical hands-on exercises, interactive talks, a tour of cybersecurity facilities at VCU, and cyber board games.
