ISTS Outreach - The Security, Technology and Society High School Summer Program

High School 2015
2015 Summer Cyber Security High School Program

This past summer’s Security, Technology, and Society high school summer program was a great success.  Co-sponsored by ISTS, the Neukom Institute for Computational Science, and Dartmouth College Information Technology Services, the annual program, held July 6-10, was once again taught by ITS security engineer Adam Goldstein.  Morning lectures in topics such as Network Defense, Cryptography, Incident Response, and Human Factors complemented hands-on computer lab exercises in the afternoon.  Dartmouth’s Chief Information Security Officer Steve Nyman gave a guest lecture on Cyber Security in Large Organizations and the students were given a tour of Dartmouth’s data center to see how information systems are physically maintained.  Dartmouth Admissions Officer Adria Belin led a college admissions workshop with the students and Computer Science professor Tom Cormen met with the group over lunch on their last day to talk about computer science in college and as a career.


Information about the program was sent to local high school science teachers, guidance counselors and other school administrators as well as advertised in the local newspaper.  Of the twenty-three students participating in the program, fourteen were from New Hampshire and Vermont and nine were from other locations throughout the United States.  In order to help spread the word about cyber security, students were asked to complete an outreach project of their own choosing.  Past projects have included posters, articles or presentations shared with the students’ school or at their local library. Projects are to be completed by the end of October in conjunction with Cyber Security Awareness Month; students submitting a project receive a certificate of course completion. Descriptions of and links to projects from this summer's class can be found here
