GenCyber Agent Academy Seeking Applicants Entering Grades 9 – 12 in the Fall

The GenCyber Agent Academy is very excited to share this opportunity with current students interested in computer science and cybersecurity. There is no cost to participants thanks to NSF/NSA funding, but acceptance is competitive. This camp will be incredible fun, enriching, and a valuable experience. GenCyber is recruiting both advanced and novice students, but demonstrated interest is important.

The National Security Agency is PROUD and EXCITED to announce that in addition to receiving full funding for GenCyber Agent Academy at the University of New Haven again, our program has been recognized by the National Security Agency as a NSA National Center of Excellence in Cyber Operations. The camp is for students entering grades 9 – 12. It is a cybersecurity and cyber forensics camp. As you may already know there is a huge talent shortage in this area. Please encourage your community to apply, and we especially welcome applications from underrepresented groups. Although this is an expensive camp to attend, the students accepted do not have to pay anything, and the camp is offered at zero cost to all accepted students. This year there are spots for 20 boys and 20 girls.

Camp Information:

Dates: July 22 to 27, 2019 from 8 am to 5:45 pm daily, optional dinner until 7 pm

Summer Journalism Program at Yale University

SJP is a one week intensive journalism program run by the Yale Daily News for high school students interested in reporting, photography, editing, design and more! This year’s program is being held from August 19th to 23rd at the Yale Daily News building on Yale’s campus. The program is run entirely by current undergraduate Daily News members, and we’ll teach the students everything they need to know about putting together a college newspaper. By the end of the week the students will have completed their very own issue of the YDN, with current New Haven and Yale stories that they will write over the five days. We will also feature a guest speaker every day to provide insight into some aspect of journalism. Notable guest speakers in past years include Vivian Wang, New York Times metro reporter and Brian Ross, an investigative correspondent for ABC News.

SJP is free for New Haven Public Schools students, and all students are expected to travel to and from campus each day, as we are unable to provide housing. I’ve attached our 2019 application, brochure and a printable flyer. If you have a newspaper at your school, or know of students who may be interested, it would be great if you could let those students know about this great opportunity! If you think that there is a large group of students that may be interested, we could also talk about setting up a time for a couple of this year’s program co-directors to visit your school and talk more about the program.

Students should send their applications to this email (<>) by June 1 with the subject line “SJP Application – [Their name.]” Students can also access the application online at<;.

Pathways to Environmental Science: Monitoring CT’s Air Quality

SATURDAYS: MAY 4, 11, 18


Ever wonder how the air quality in Connecticut compares to the air quality in other cities along the East Coast? In this 3-part workshop, we will build simple air quality monitors to track the concentration of ozone, carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds, and particulate matter. We will then take a field trip to the Yale Coastal Field Station, an air quality monitoring site, to deploy our monitors and learn about how we measure air pollution along the coast of Connecticut. Finally, we will explore how air quality in the New Haven area compares to other bigger cities like New York and Washington DC, key factors that contribute to air pollution in a city, and the health impacts of air pollution.
