Davidson High Computing Camp 2019
Since 2015, USA's School of Computing has partnered with Davidson High to host incoming ninth grade students for a week-long cybersecurity camp, which is held at Shelby Hall. The goal of the camp is to foster interest in cybersecurity education for college-bound students and build foundational relationships with teachers in our geographic area.
During the camp, students receive hands-on experience in cybersecurity through activities
and real-world scenario exercises. Students have the opportunity to learn programming,
robotics, and cyber physical systems, as well as to participate in discussions about
trending topics on safe online behavior. As a culminating activity in programming
and robotics, students work in teams to navigate a Sphero robot through a mini-maze.
