CyberCorps Camp 2018 at SUU

The 2018 CyberCorps Camp is coming up on May 11-12 in Cedar City, Utah and will be held on the beautiful campus of Southern Utah University. We will have two days of hands-on, in depth learning arranged for you, along with a LOT of great food, snacks and prize drawings. The more you participate in the sessions you attend, the better chance you'll have to have your drawing ticket selected. 

Take a look at the session schedule (it's close to final, sill a work in process at this point). You'll be able to set your own schedule soon - please encourage your CyberCorps leader to send in the Camp Attendees Roster to Vicky or Clint!

A camp highlight will be our micro:bit badges. Every student in attendance will get one! You'll code your own electronic camp name badge, as well as have many other opportunities to learn how to program your Micro:Bit to do all sorts of things.

We will have technology professionals from around the state on hand to lead the sessions. Want to learn how to create an app for iOS? You'll be able to work with an Apple Engineer and do just that! We'll have experts from many other IT fields there as well.
