2021 Virtual CPS Summer Camp
June 7-11, 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee

The summer cybercamp will offer a hands-on curriculum that teaches cybersecurity, programming, and robotics. Students will work in teams utilizing virtual robots in a shared 3D world. Participants will create computer programs to control the robots using NetsBlox – a visual block-based programming environment specifically designed to teach distributed programming and computer networking. The NetsBlox environment enables students to disrupt or hijack each other’s robots, allowing them to be both attacker and defender. The camp will demonstrate to students the need for various detection and defense mechanisms and spark interest in further studies in cyber-physical systems (CPS) security. Participants are required to have taken the AP CS Principles course already.
