Forty-five area middle and high school girls will have an opportunity to become Cyber Ninjas at a unique day camp being held at the NRCC New River Valley Mall site in Christiansburg this July.

The camp, which is free of charge, will run July 11 through 15 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The week will culminate with a one-hour session open to family and friends to witness the projects completed during the camp.

Three areas of the cyber world will be covered during the week-long day camp: "cyber safety games" where students will create their own game encouraging good security practices; "securing the Internet of Things" where students will 3D print a drone and fly it on cyber missions; and "cyber security detective agency" where security software will be used to solve mysteries.

Each area will be instructed by a professional from the information technology field.

Campers will receive lunch every day and a t-shirt, USB, and a Raspberry Pi at the end of the week.

Applications are available at the NRCC New River Valley Mall site or by contacting Dr. Filer at dfiler@nr.edu.

Funding for the camp is made possible through a National Security Agency grant.

Call Toll Free: 1-866-462-6722 or (540) 674-3600 plus the extension number to reach any employee.
