Cadets of the Michigan City High School (MCHS) Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (MCJROTC) attended the GenCyber Camp at Purdue University Northwest in Hammond from June 18-22. Skills needed for a career in cyber security were developed at this camp. These are also skills that cadets use when competing in Cyber Patriot, the national cyber security game where cadets act as security managers for an organization, defending and counterattacking against a cyber attack. This camp, like all JROTC activities, was done at no cost to the cadets or MCHS. The camp was funded by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation.
Camp attendees came from as far west as the Chicago metro area and as far east Michigan City. MCHS had the most students from any one high school.
