About cyber security camp
To meet the demand for cybersecurity and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) among middle and high school students, Chantilly Academy, a Governor’s STEM Academy, is again partnering with Northrop Grumman and the Volgenau School of Engineering at George Mason University (GMU) to host its annual cybersecurity summer camp. Students will learn cyber ethics, computer forensics, cyber security fundamentals, and will be provided information on cybersecurity internships and careers in the field.
The camp’s curriculum is based on the Air Force Association’s (AFA) CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Education Program, presented by the Northrop Grumman Foundation. This camp is open to students 7th-12th and the cost is $225 for the week (includes materials, lunch each day, and a t-shirt).
About girls in STEM camp
This new camp will provide girls with an opportunity to experience the world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through a fun week with plenty of hands-on activities. For girls new to STEM, summer programs provide a fun way to explore unfamiliar subjects — potentially discovering new areas of interest. For girls already interested in STEM, these camps build on existing interests or knowledge.
Girls in STEM camp is open to student in rising 5th-8th grade. The cost of the camp is $225 for the week (includes materials, lunch each day, and a t-shirt).
