Abstract: With the high demand of the nation for next generation cybersecurity experts, it is important to design and provide hands-on labs for students at the K-12 level in order to increase their interest in cybersecurity and enhance their confidence in learning cybersecurity skills at the young age. This poster reports some preliminary analysis results from the 2016 GenCyber summer camp held at Old Dominion University (ODU), which is part of a nationwide grant program funded by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). This poster also demonstrates the design of three hands-on labs which have been devised to be age-appropriate for middle and high school students.
