When they could have been out soaking up the summer sun, 14 high school students from around North Dakota and Minnesota instead chose to delve into the cyber security industry and sharpen their skills at a week-long cyber camp on the Bismarck State College campus.
BSC Cyber Patriot Camp is a partnership with the Air Force Association (AFA) and teaches the importance of cyber defense skills through hands-on instruction and activities. The camp culminated in a final, exciting, team competition that simulated real situations faced by cybersecurity industry professionals.
Local KX12 news reporter Renee Cooper stopped by to visit with instructors and students about the skills being taught, why those skills are important and whether or not the students can see a future for themselves in cyber security. Watch the story online.
A BSC Cyber Camp for students grades 6-9 will be held on campus Aug. 6-7. Learn more at https://bit.ly/2XkwUSl.
