GenCyber Teacher Camp

Lehigh Carbon Community College will offer a one-week cybersecurity summer camp for elementary, middle, and high school teachers in Lehigh, Carbon, and Schuylkill counties from June 24 through June 28.

The Lehigh Carbon GenCyber Teacher Camp will train teachers in the topics of computer components, computer networks, cryptography, cybersecurity, safe online behavior, and cyber ethics. 

GenCyber’s Cybersecurity First Principles and Concepts will be integrated throughout the program content.

The camp participants will also be taught how to integrate these topics into their curricula at an age-appropriate level. The camp will be a combination of lecture and lots of hands-on exercises. 

Through the year-long follow-up program, the camp instructors will support the teachers as they gain confidence in inserting cybersecurity concepts into their courses.
  • In particular, there will be an instructional designer prepared to help camp attendees ensure they can produce class-ready lesson plans pertaining to cybersecurity.
The goals of the GenCyber program are to increase interest in cybersecurity careers and diversity in the cybersecurity workforce, help students understand correct and safe online behavior, and improve teaching methods for delivering cybersecurity content in K-12 curricula.

LCCC’s GenCyber Camp (a credit course), to be held June 24-28, is limited to 20 teachers in grades 1-12.  Each teacher will be paid a $100 per day stipend and receive 3 credits for participation in the one-week camp. 

To apply,
  •      Application closed.
  •      Note: those who are selected will need to become an LCCC student as this is a credit course. Upon acceptance, we’ll show you how. It’s easy.  
Camp instructors will be Susan Miner, Professor of Computer Science and Coordinator of the Cyber Center at LCCC, and Sami Jo Eckhart, teacher of Business, Computers, and Information Technology at Parkland High School
