The Department of Computer & Information Technology at Purdue University was awarded a GenCyber grant, funded by the NSA and NSF, to host a free, residential cybersecurity camp for 40 girls, incoming 9th-12th grade.

We are recruiting students from the Midwest. In 2016, we had students attend from Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, and Indiana! In addition, in 2016,students in each camp had to fill out a survey to evaluate the success of each camp. The 2016 Purdue University Cybersecurity camp received statistically significant above average scores, compared to the other camps, on student’s perceived learning, self-efficacy, and overall camp experience. My Co-PI Dawn Laux and I were even invited to the GenCyber Fall 2016 meeting as panelists for“Climate and Culture – Building a Sense of Community in GenCyber Camps.”
