Have a tech inclined teen at home? Check out the 11th annual Seidenberg Summer Scholars program that affords high school aged teens the opportunity to come to campus and learn from the professionals. Geared toward top high school students with an interest in computing, this program allows students to leverage computing technologies to build software and apps that provide solutions to emerging societal problems. Based on an integrated academic, service, and cultural model, students can choose to earn three college credits toward a Pace/Seidenberg degree for their academic work or earn community service hours.

On the Westchester Campus? Check out the GenCyber Workshop offered by the Seidenberg School. As a part of its outreach activities in cybersecurity and in STEM, Pace University is proud to host the GenCyber program for a second consecutive year. Supported by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation, the GenCyber program provides summer cybersecurity camp experiences for students. This dynamic, co-ed, interactive, and mission-driven one-week camp introduces high-school students to the basics of cybersecurity using various pedagogical approaches, including storytelling, hands-on labs, and problem-solving missions. Each day, high school students act as Navy personnel engaged with various missions that require solving problems using the SeaPerch Robotics System (an underwater robot) and cybersecurity. Applications for this free program are due no later than April 29. Learn more about GenCyber here.
