In the summer of 2018, the Institute for Security, Technology and Society (ISTS) will convene summer programs for high school students on the Dartmouth College campus. The programs explore current interdisciplinary research in cybersecurity and privacy. As our nation’s critical infrastructure, political processes, and businesses come under cyber-attack, there is an ever-increasing need to educate more students to enable expansion of our cybersecurity workforce.

The programs are not residential – there is no on campus lodging, but lunch will be provided in Dartmouth's main dining facility.

Adam Goldstein, Assistant Professor at Champlain College, will once again be the instructor for the programs. Adam has been the lead instructor in this program for the last five years. Adam, besides being keenly interested in teaching cybersecurity fundamentals, also has years of experience implementing information security programs and projects. We are indeed fortunate to have Adam lead these programs.

In 2018 we hope to offer both an introductory and an advanced program for high school students. Topics to be covered will include: 

  • Cybersecurity First Principles
  • 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:
    •      Networks (e.g., through intrusion detection)
    •      Systems
    •      Humans

The program combines lectures with hands-on and interactive activities, augmented with field trips and guest speakers. Members of the College’s computing services staff will provide a ‘behind the scenes’ look at security. In keeping with the outreach mission of the ISTS, participants are requested to complete an outreach project of their own design to spread the word about cybersecurity. Examples of outreach projects can be found here.

There is no charge for the workshop – this community outreach program is generously funded by Dartmouth College and the GenCyber program, a partnership between the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation to help young people learn about cybersecurity and how cybersecurity knowledge can be of benefit in the future. 


Dartmouth College, the ISTS, and the GenCyber Program know that the best learning happens in a classroom filled with multiple perspectives and experiences. Thus, we are looking for the most diverse applicant pool possible. Computer science experience is not required to apply! We are looking for students who are interested and passionate.

Applications, including a teacher recommendation, are due in the early spring.

A completed application form is required and will be available in the spring of 2018.

Recommendation forms will be available for download from this page in the spring of 2018. Recommendations must be emailed to ISTS.

Per GenCyber regulations, program participants must reside in the United States and be enrolled in a United States high school or be home-schooled.

If you have any questions about the program, please email or call 603.646.0700.
