Cyber.org of Bossier City, Louisiana, announced Monday the kickoff of Project Access, a program designed to expand access to cybersecurity education for blind and vision-impaired students between the ages of 13-21 who are in pre-employment transition.
The program, funded by a Cybersecurity Education and Training Assistance Program (CETAP) grant from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, includes a series of Linux and robotics camps to be held this summer in Arkansas, Maine, Virginia and Michigan.
The camps, taught by locals with oversight by Cyber.org, will introduce students to key cybersecurity topics, help them develop cybersecurity skills, and explore the possibility of a career in the growing industry. Students will also have the opportunity to meet and learn from professionals.
The camp in Arkansas, a robotics camp, is set for July 18-22.
