Free cybersecurity summer course offered July 17-21

June 29, 2023

Kula Kauwela will once again offer a free cybersecurity course for Kamehameha Hawaiʻi middle and high school students in grades 6-12. It is a week-long half day (4 hours/day) class designed for those with an interest in learning more about cybersecurity. 

What is the AFA CyberCamp?

The AFA CyberCamp program is designed to excite students new to cybersecurity about STEM career opportunities and teach them important cyber defense skills through hands-on instruction and activities. Through the camp, students will learn how to protect their personal devices and information from outside threats, as well as how to harden entire networks running Windows 10 and Ubuntu operating systems. The AFA CyberCamp will culminate in an exciting final team competition that simulates real cybersecurity situations faced by industry professionals and mimics AFA’s CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Defense Competition.
