    The Cybersecurity & Digital Forenscis Academy offers hands-on training in these exciting on in-demand fields. Students learn hacking techniques—as well as the strategies to defend against them—then use real-life scenarios to build a network defense. After demonstrations by prominent experts in digital forensics, participants form teams that compete to solve an actual case by applying investigative techniques, developing a body of evidence, and presenting their conclusions.

    In this two-week-long, in-depth learning experience, high school students who are excited to pursue a career in digital forensics and cybersecurity can dive into a digital forensic lab experience while meeting new friends and building connections with industry experts.

    Students in the Academy will gain hands-on learning experience from veterans of the cybersecurity industry, covering a wide breadth of digital forensics and cybersecurity, from investigating digital crimes to constructing and safeguarding networks. Students will also work together to solve real digital forensics problems faced by law enforcement agencies all over America.

    In the Cybersecurity & Digital Forensics Academy, students will:

    • Gain real, practical skills in cybersecurity
    • Learn how to defend against cyberattacks, investigate digital crimes, and work both independently and as part of a team
    • Learn new skills and work collaboratively with other students who are also passionate about cybersecurity and digital forensics
    • Learn to present your findings as part of a small team
    • Prepare for both college life and their future careers in cybersecurity

    Located on the shores of Lake Champlain in beautiful Burlington, Vermont, Champlain College's Pre-College Summer Programs provide students with a robust learning environment and the opportunity to make new connections with peers and faculty who have shared STEM interests. (Space is limited.)
