GenCyber LogoThis summer, from June 27 to July 1 on the Dartmouth campus, the Institute for Security, Technology and Society (ISTS) will provided a summer workshop for high school students.  The workshop explores 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

The workshop is a day program* only - there is no on-campus lodging or meal plan provided. 

Adam Goldstein will lead this year's workshop.  Adam is the Associate Director for Information Security 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 will include 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 is mixture of 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 ISTS, participants are requested to complete an outreach project of their own design to spread the word about cyber security.  Outreach projects from the most recent workshop in 2015 can be seen here. For descriptions of student past projects: 2012, 2013, 2014.


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 skills in that area can pay off for them in the future.   



Applications, including a teacher recommendation, are due April 18, 2016.

Please complete the application form.

Recommendation forms are available for download here (.docx). Recommendations must be emailed to ISTS.

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

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