Young CryptograpHers: A Cybersecurity Summer Camp for High School Girls by FAU Department of Mathematical Sciences


The camp is over! Thanks to all of you for contributing to its success!


Shaping the Future of Cybersecurity

Young CryptograpHers is a Cybersecurity summer camp specially designed for high school girls. Participants will be introduced to the fundamental principles of cybersecurity and learn how to apply conceptual knowledge to real-world situations. The camp will focus on Post-Quantum Cryptography, the area of math that is in charge of protecting our information in the era of quantum technology. The program includes lectures and activities by FAU faculty, alumni and speakers from industry and government. Our goal is to motivate and inspire talented students who are interested in a cybersecurity career. 

The camp is generously sponsored by a grant from Cyber Florida. This means participation is free, as the funding covers all costs for the students, including registration, catering, and camp gear! Attendance is limited and subject to availability, so apply now to take advantage of this opportunity. For more info, contact the program director, Dr. Edoardo Persichetti at .
