COLLEGE STATION - The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) is awarding full scholarships to 40 high school students to attend the Cyber Innovation Camp this summer.  Students who will complete the 8th, 9th, 10th, or 11th grade this year are eligible to participate in the five-day program.

Designed to provide teens with an introduction to the computing and cybersecurity industry, students will receive their own Raspberry Pi computer to learn programming, cybersecurity, electronics and sensors, engineering design, and more. The camp meets from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day, and lunch will be provided.

Two sessions of the day camp, with a maximum of 20 students each, will be held June 5-9 and Aug. 7-11 in College Station. This opportunity is made possible through a grant from the Texas Workforce Commission’s Governor’s Summer Merit Program to TEEX’s Cybersecurity Program in Knowledge Engineering. Camp Coordinator is Diane Cornwell. 

Children of TEEX employees who meet the requirements are eligible to participate. Applications and teacher recommendations are due May 1, 2017.
