Through the CybHER program at DSU, students from South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa traveled to Florida to spend the week learning from national experts about cybersecurity concepts. This was the program’s second year.
“CybHER has found an incredible opportunity for these girls at Rocket Camp,” said Cheryl Riley, president, AT&T Northern Plains. “At AT&T, we love to encourage students in science, coding and tech, and are proud to support these young women interested in cybersecurity.”
Rocket Girls Camp provided sessions on topics ranging from the Internet of Things and cyber-crime and security, to digital forensics and hacking. Campers also watched a simulated space shuttle launch and ate lunch with an astronaut.
