In addition to this core camp, our outreach plan includes:

GenCyber on Wheels (Expected participants: 600): There will be multiple field trips (one week long, 1/2 cybersecurity, 1/2 STEM) to a regional high school on a STEM mobile truck provided by the TN Tech STEM Center. Each trip will involve stationing the STEM Mobile to allow high school students to board the vehicle and discover cybersecurity-related, hands-on exercises using Raspberry PIs and laptops.
Middle School Site Visits (Expected participants: 500): We will visit two local middle schools for a Cyber Conscious Citizen session about Online Safety.
Seed Fund to Start CyberPatriot Clubs (Expected seed fund to be awarded: 2)
To continue the legacy of GenCyber Camp, maintain interest in cybersecurity as a hopeful outcome of the camp and facilitate an outlet for students to continue with their new interest, encourage and support students to start Cyber Patriot clubs at their schools.

Individual Capability

A group of students working on an activity learn some tips from the Tennessee Tech Camp Chaperones! Our chaperones are majors in Tennessee Tech's Computer Science program focusing in cybersecurity and help bridge a personal connection to the students of GenCyber! By getting a first-hand glimpse into this field from the camp and connecting with TN Tech students and faculty, students gain a strong understanding of what they and the field of cybersecurity have to offer.
