Capital Credit Union donated $5,000 to UW-Green Bay’s GenCyber Camp (July 31 through August 4) at UW-Green Bay. The only one of its kind in Wisconsin this summer, the no-cost camp targets Northeast Wisconsin students in grades 7-9 traditionally underrepresented in computer science fields of study and careers. The mission of the program is to attract, educate and inspire a new generation of college bound students to the critical field of cybersecurity. UW-Green Bay’s Division of Continuing Education and Community Engagement was also awarded a grant from the GenCyber program to host the camp with funding provided from the National Security Agency. The funds will be used for additional camper opportunities and educational technology.
