The NDSU Department of Computer Science is set to offer a BisonCyber camp for high school students June 20-24.
Students entering grade nine in the fall and those who graduated this spring are welcome to participate.
The camp will cover topics in cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, programming and robotics. The day camp format runs from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and there also is a residential camp option.
The camp is free, supported by a $20,000 grant from the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction.
“NDSU’s cybersecurity and computing-focused summer camps provide students the opportunity to learn key computing skills while having a lot of fun,” said Jeremy Straub, the NDSU Cybersecurity Institute director and an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science. Straub also is principal investigator of the NDDPI award and camp director. “Campers build and program robots, learn how to secure and defend computers, develop programming skills and learn about artificial intelligence. These are all key skills for today’s students.”
Primary camp instruction will be provided by NDSU computer science faculty members Pratap Kotala, Simone Ludwig, Zahid Anwar, Zubair Malik, Joe Latimer and Straub.
This summer will be NDSU’s fourth year offering cyber summer camps. More details and registration can be found on the BisonCyber website.
As a student-focused, land-grant, research institution, we serve our citizens.
