The Mount Vernon Campus of the George Washington University is a finalist in a competition to host a GenCyber cybersecurity day camp for middle school girls funded by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The Middle School Girls Cybersecurity Camp will be held the week of August 10, 2020. The camp will meet every day online as a virtual camp.

The Middle School Girls Cybersecurity Virtual Camp is a one-week, all-inclusive summer program online supported by the George Washington University in Washington, DC based on US government funding from the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation. The program is available, without charge, to girls in middle school who have interest in learning about the world – in all areas but specifically in science, computers or math as well as developing cybersecurity skills and learning about careers in the cybersecurity workforce. The program includes virtual field trips to the National Cryptologic Museum. Moreover, the participants will meet with some of the most prominent members of the cybersecurity field during special guest visits. Campers will receive a pair of micro-bit computers for our daily cybersecurity work. Campers who complete the full week will be able to keep the micro-bit computers.

24 participants will be selected for the program. There is no charge to participants

The program will run from August 10th to 15th, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day, though campers will not be online all of that time.
