VIRTUAL OPTION REGISTRATION PAGE
The USF High School CyberCamp encourages high school students (grades 9-12) from across the Tampa Bay area to pursue careers in the rapidly growing cybersecurity industry. The week-long program helps students learn what being an ethical hacker is all about.
Supported by local cybersecurity student groups and industry leaders, USF High School CyberCamp participants explore cybersecurity careers while networking with industry professionals within the Tampa-area cybersecurity community. Course curriculum is supported by Florida CyberHub resources and lesson plans from the Florida Center for Instructional Technology. Campers will work through hands-on cybersecurity exercises with experts virtually, engage with lectures from industry and community leaders, and network with cybersecurity students and professionals during this five-day camp.
The USF High School CyberCamp is being offered in two formats this year, virtual and in-person, to expand reach and to provide options suitable for all families. The in-person option will provide campers a conference-like experience where they will have the opportunity to select sessions presented by various experts and teachers, participate in hands-on activities, and network with peers and industry professionals. The virtual option will be similar to a virtual conference where campers will be given the opportunity to view and interact virtually with various presentations, participate in virtual experiences, and network through chat platforms. Both formats will run simultaneously and campers will be able to all interact regardless of the chosen format.
