They represent an increasingly digitally connected world that requires specific skills, highly collaborative mindsets, and a curiosity for the unknown. During Cybersecurity and Esports week, students from all schools are invited to take their first steps toward careers in cybersecurity and esports, which both have career pathways in creative services, business management, finance, and engineering.

#BeCyberSmart Cybercamp is for students who want a fun, fast-paced, in-person learning experience focused on cybersecurity defense. Students will be introduced to networking fundamentals and architecture. They will engage in a variety of activities in Windows and Linux environments and daily topics will include Cyber Ethics, Windows 10, Ubuntu 18, Cisco Networking, and a CyberPatriot competition day.

Youth Esports Summer Camp by Vanta Leagues will explore the fundamentals of esports through a team-based program that is COPPA compliant. The program includes in-game instruction for League of Legends with expert trained coaches, supervised recreation play, and holistic player development programming.
