Gencyber Workshop for Teachers

GenCyber: Cybersecurity Exploration

Summer Workshop for
Middle and High School Teachers
July 8-9, 2015

Spend two days at RIT this summer to explore cybersecurity challenges
and develop lesson plans for your students!


A stipend of $750 will be provided for completing the summer workshop and developing a lesson plan to incorporate cybersecurity into their teaching; out of town teachers may use the stipend for overnight stay. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and coffee/tea will be provided on both workshop days.


Overview of Cyber First Principles and Cybersecurity; a set of collaborative, hands-on fun activities including password hacking, live malware handling and smartphone protection; and a discussion of diverse technical and non-technical careers in cybersecurity available for students with different interests and backgrounds. The materials are designed so that a background in computer programming is not required for students, and instructors will be able to use a just-in-time approach to code development when needed in an activity.

At Rochester Institute of Technology’s main campus in Henrietta, New York.
