PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Pace University is inviting area students to attend a free, five-day summer program designed to introduce high school students to the fundamentals of cybersecurity utilizing SeaPerch, an underwater robot. 

Each day students will explore the concepts of cybersecurity first principles through analysis and investigation. The camp experience includes hands-on labs and interactive activities that incorporate SeaPerch, as well as meeting Millenia, a life-size robot.

At the end of the camp, students will be able to demonstrate proficiency and apply critical thinking to the following areas: cyber-literacy, cyber-science, cyber-warfare, and cyber-society. No prior knowledge of cybersecurity or SeaPerch is required.

The program will be held Monday, July 25 to Friday, July 29 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Pace's Pleasantville campus. Free breakfast and lunch are included. All applicants must live within commuting distance.

The application deadline is Friday, April 29 and registration can be found here.

For more information, email gencyber@pace.edu.
