Cyber security camp for high school juniors and seniors coming to WCC

Whatcom Community College is taking applications for its fall 2015 Cybersecurity Camp, a six-session camp for high school juniors and seniors.

Students will learn about cyber security through hands-on computer activities, according to a press release.

The camp culminates with participation in the CyberPatriot competition, a National Youth Cyber Defense competition. The top competitors in the national contest win a trip to Baltimore for the national finals competition in April 2016, where they could earn scholarships.

Applications for the camp are due Sept. 15 and will be reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis. A minimum 2.0 GPA is required to apply. Attending the course costs $60, and scholarships may be available for students on free or reduced lunch programs, according to the press release.

The fall 2015 camp sessions are 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 26, Oct. 3, 10, 17, 24, and Nov. 14.
