University of Nebraska at Kearney


The University of Nebraska at Kearney (UNK) was founded in 1903.  The current undergraduate enrollment is just above 5,100 students.  The campus spans over 500 acres and is a public university in Kearney, Nebraska.   

This camp is lead by Dr. Matt Miller from the Department of Cyper Systems.  Cybersecurity has been put into the public spotlight over the past 5 years. Cybersecurity affects the lives of every individual that uses a smart phone, computer or the Internet of Things (IOT). The cybersecurity camp gives campers an introduction into computer architectures, embedded systems hardware, networking concepts and computer programming. They use the tools to explore both computer science and cyber security topics and each student receives a Raspberry Pi computer that they can use to write programs and develop cybersecurity skills. 
 

Camp will take place at the Otto Olsen building at UNK.


VIRTUAL CAMP UPDATE: Due to UNK's decision to cancel all on-campus activities through July UNK faculty members are moving this camp online. Camp will take place Wednesday-Friday for approx. 4 hours in afternoon. Parent Showcase on Saturday. Prior to camp dates, a camp kit will be mailed out to each participant. Each participant will need a monitor (HDMI input), mouse & Keyboard. Participant will also need a separate computer or WIFI device to join virtually.
