Camps for K-12 Students

UB Cybersecurity Camp

Learn about the exciting world of cybersecurity at UB's Cybersecurity Camp. Campers participate in hands-on computer activities to learn about different cybersecurity topics. On the final day of camp, students attempt to defend a network of computers from a simulated cyber-attack!
