GenCyber MSP Goes Virtual For 2021

Due to uncertainty about the ability to offer an in-person experience at the time of registration we have decided to offer GenCyber MSP as an entirely virtual camp experience this year. While we're still working out all the details we are preparing for another great year of fun, exciting, and engaging cybersecurity activities! Camp participants will receive a mailed “CyberPack” which will include a RaspberryPi computer for you to use and to keep, GenCyber MSP program materials, and other exciting freebies!

The GenCyber MSP 2021 Virtual Camp will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (two days a week) from July 6, 2021 to July 21, 2021. In order to be selected as a participant you must be able to attend all sessions. Preference will be given to teachers who have not attended any GenCyber camp before, those who have not attended a GenCyber MSP camp, and to those from the upper-Midwest however all applications will be considered.

You will need to be able to provide a location to work from with a stable high-speed Internet connection, a computer or Chromebook to use as a videoconferencing device, and an additional monitor/TV, keyboard, and mouse to use with your Raspberry Pi.

Our crack staff is working hard to test and modify existing activities as well as to develop entirely new activities which can take full advantage of the virtual format. We hope that GenCyber MSP 2021 is the best GenCyber camp ever and look forward to seeing you there, virtually!

GenCyber camps are open to participants at no cost. During the camps, participants will receive a Raspberry Pi computer, a powerful mini-PC they can use to continue their cybersecurity explorations after the camp experience concludes.
