Learn, hack, fix, and explore cyber security.

DSU GenCyber Teachers is a Cyber Security camp designed for 6th - 12th Grade STEM teachers. Participants will engage in hands-on education sessions with DSU professors, alumni, and current students as well as other industry professionals.

The camp's main purpose is to educate and excite middle and high school STEM teachers and help them to incorporate cyber security in the classroom.

Participants do not need any prior background or experience in security or computers to attend.

Where & When

Plan to arrive on the campus of Dakota State University in Madison, SD during the morning of June 5, 2023 and depart around lunch on June 9, 2023.

Coming from afar? If you fly into Sioux Falls (FSD), we'll provide transportation to and from the airport (we can pick up from buses and trains too, just ask).

Don't worry about lodging - you'll be provided a dorm room on campus to stay in. Want to commute daily? Arriving early? Departing late? That's all ok too! Just let us know your plans when you register. Parking is free for both those commuting and staying on campus.

Hack into cyber with some of the best faculty in the country.

Dakota State University has cyber programs that are top in the nation. You'll be working with the same folks that educate future cyber operators, network security analysts, and developers. They'll help you introduce cutting edge cyber education concepts to your classroom.

Hunt down new classroom activities.

While we have many core elements to learn about at camp, part of the fun is expanding beyond what's required. You might spend some time learning how large scale lighting shows work, how to make your own badges, or even tune to radio stations with your laptop.

Develop new skills.

We want to see you using these new skills in your classrooms. Graduate credit can be awarded at completion of camp for a fee of around $40/credit (up to 3 credits for camp completion).
