A group of 26 high school math and science teachers from 13 states are participating in an all-expenses-paid cyber security boot camp at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) this week.
Part of the university's Cyber Security Awareness Week (CSAW), the Cyber Security Summer Boot Camp is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the result of a collaboration between NYU-Poly and CUNY New York City College of Technology.
Currently in its ninth year, CSAW is "an annual competition that unites teams of high school and college students for a week of white-hat hacking, forensics, capture-the-flag, and embedded systems challenges," according to information released by NYU-Poly.
