GenCyber Summer Cybersecurity Teacher Camp 2019
Inver Hills Community College received a grant from the National Security Agency (NSA) and National Science Foundation (NSF) to host a GenCyber Summer Cybersecurity Camp for K–12 Teachers.

The camp was held June 24–28, 2019, in the Business building on the college's campus in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota.

GenCyber camps are open to participants at no cost. During the camp, participants received a Raspberry Pi computer, a powerful mini-PC they can use to continue their cybersecurity explorations after the camp experience concluded.

Ben Franske, PhD, Inver Hills IT faculty, taught the camp. Ben was 26 when he earned his Ph.D. in Technology/Engineering Education from the University of Minnesota. He graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Telecommunications Systems from the University of Wisconsin, Stout, specializing in Training & Human Resource Development. He started teaching at Inver Hills in 2009.

"Our goal is to increase student interest and diversity in cybersecurity," Ben said. "We also wish to help teachers provide the best possible cybersecurity education to their students."
