Cyber Camp at Franklin to teach digital forensics to middle- and high-school students

The Franklin Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps is hosting its annual Cyber Camp July 12-16 aimed to train the country’s future forensic experts.

The face-to-face camp teaches middle- and high-school students about cyber forensics and networking, as well as skills to protect against viruses, malware and hackers.

“Our hope is to introduce and hopefully encourage campers to study an area of STEM that is critical to our nation’s success and survival,” Major (Ret.) Todd Parsont said.

“All this while having fun, gaining confidence and making new friends.”

Campers who participate in Cyber Camp will have access to many opportunities even after the camp has ended.

“Our CyberPatriot camp and competition team is one of those extracurricular activities that is not only challenging, but fun,” Parsont said.

“Participating in the camp and the competitive phase during the school year will open-up opportunities to scholarships, internships, employment and certifications.”

The last day to register is July 6. For more information and to register, email Major Todd Parsont at tparsont@episd.org.
