GenCyber: Appalachian Solutions Teacher Academy includes a one-week in-person session summer training that will assist 10 middle school and 10 high school teachers from any discipline to develop and integrate cyber modules into their classroom. The purpose is to spread awareness in Cybersecurity to students that normally do not have access. Academy participants will engage in hands-on explorations of the many aspects of security including ethics, networks, phishing, social engineering, ethical hacking, and password management/cracking. Academy participants will also develop lesson plans for delivering cybersecurity content in K-12 curricula. The 2024 academy will be open to 10 high school teachers and 10 middle school teachers within the Big Sandy Community & Technical College service area to include Floyd, Martin, Magoffin, Pike and Johnson counties.

Academy participants will explore the world of cybersecurity with experts in the field through fun, real-world learning experiences enhanced by close teacher-student interaction. Camp activities include hands-on exercises, interactive lectures, games, career exploration, and campus tours. To ensure a level playing field, GenCyber camps are open to all teacher participants at no cost. A stipend will be provided for full participation. The GenCyber program is financially supported by the National Science Foundation and the National Security Agency.
