USF High School CyberCon (Grades 9-12)

The USF High School CyberCon encourages high school students (grades 9-12) from across the Tampa Bay area to pursue careers in the rapidly growing cybersecurity industry. The week-long program helps students learn what being an ethical hacker is all about.
Supported by local cybersecurity student groups and industry leaders, USF High School CyberCon participants explore cybersecurity careers while networking with industry professionals within the Tampa-area cybersecurity community. Course curriculum is supported by Florida CyberHub resources and lesson plans from the Florida Center for Instructional Technology. Campers will work through hands-on cybersecurity exercises with experts virtually, engage with lectures from industry and community leaders, and network with cybersecurity students and professionals during this five-day camp.

The USF High School CyberCon will provide campers a conference-like experience where they will have the opportunity to select sessions presented by various experts and teachers, participate in hands-on activities, and network with peers and industry professionals.
