Educational Camps Help Prepare the Next Generation Workforce
We held two week-long CyberPatriot Camps, in partnership with Calhoun, where students learned about the field of cyber security from local industry leaders. The goal of these two camps is to offer students an opportunity to learn hands-on about technical skills that can lead to high paying, in-demand careers in high growth industries. The students were introduced to the field of cyber security by becoming familiar with Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems. The students gained experience in the areas of vulnerability identification, risk assessment, risk mitigation techniques, wi-fi security, IP addressing, and informational ethics. Students finished the week with a competition in which schools across the United States compete.
On June 21- 23, we held a three-day Advanced Automotive Academy, in partnership with Calhoun, where twenty-two high school students gained hands-on experience with electric and hybrid vehicles, built an electric motor and learned the basics of gas engines.
