CPS Security Student Camps 2019

Two 2019 summer camps were held </span>at the Vanderbilt University Institute for Software Integrated Systems in Nashvillle, Tennessee. The camps offered a hands-on curriculum that teaches cybersecurity, programming, and robotics. Students worked in teams utilizing WiFi-enabled robots and 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. These camps demonstrated to students the need for various detection and defense mechanisms and spark interest in further studies in cyber-physical systems security.
