This camp is dedicated to the memory of
Patrick Tsang.
Past instructor and Dartmouth PhD student.


This past July, on the Dartmouth campus, the Institute for Security, Technology and Society (ISTS) provided a summer workshop for high school students.  The workshop explored current interdisciplinary research in cyber security and privacy.  As our nation's critical infrastructure and businesses come under cyber attack, there is an ever-increasing need to educate more students to enable the expansion of our cybersecurity workforce

We hope to provide this workshop again in the summer of 2015. Check back here for updates.

The workshop was a day program only - there was no on-campus lodging provided. 

Adam Goldstein led this year's workshop.  Adam is the IT Security Engineer with Dartmouth College Information Technology Services, where he is the technical lead for information security operations and serves as the security adviser on numerous IT projects and working groups.

This program for high school students included the following topics: 

• Introduction to Computer Security and Case Studies
• Ethics Discussion (at the beginning and end of the camp)
• Security in the "Real World"
• Security best practices and security awareness
• Security terminology
• Studies and careers in computer security
• Primers on security as related to:
     o Networks (e.g., through intrusion detection)
     o Systems
     o Humans

The program was mixture of lectures with hands-on and interactive activities, augmented with field trips and guest speakers.  Members of the College's computing services staff provided a "behind the scenes" look at security.  In keeping with the outreach mission of ISTS, participants were requested to complete an outreach project of their own design to spread the word about cyber security.  Descriptions of student projects from the 2012 and 2013 Security Summer Workshop can be seen here and here.  Outreach projects from the most recent workshop in 2014 can be seen here.


This camp is made possible by generous funding from the
Department of Defense's Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP)
