Due to University of South Florida COVID-19 closures, the USF Elementary CyberCamp is going completely online! We are so excited to be able to offer our camp in a completely online format for 3rd - 5th grade children stuck at home during the summer.
Campers will work up the ranks as cybersecurity secret agent recruits working for the Cybersecurity Agency for Global Engagement (C.A.G.E.). In their new position with C.A.G.E. they will figure out puzzles, go on virtual-tours, and gather information to expose a mole within the organization! Every piece of the camp is interwoven with the engaging narrative of turmoil within C.A.G.E. and campers will be in control as they help solve the mystery.
Campers will receive a packet with all the necessary materials for the week including an ID badge, a secret message pen, a C.A.G.E. t-shirt, and a whole lot more. All they will need is a computer, an internet connection, and a secret agent mentality to be completely immersed in the world of C.A.G.E.

Recommended Grade Level: 3-5
By completely immersing campers in a high-energy, cooperative simulation, USF’s Elementary
CyberCamp gives students in grades 3-5 a space to problem solve through a hands-on
and engaging learning experience while interacting with a variety of technologies.
Taking on the role of an agent working at the headquarters of a secret global organization,
campers will team up to prevent and defend against cyber attackers while learning
about the multiple layers of security within a system.
Campers will gain knowledge in computing concepts including skills associated with cybersecurity, computing architecture, and coding as they work together to complete specific cybersecurity and computer science missions for the organization. Each day of the camp will highlight and enhance students’ understanding of the program's curriculum, while developing campers’ knowledge and skills that can be applied to their own interactions within the digital world.
