The National Security Agency and National Science Foundation jointly awarded UW with a $100,000 grant for “COWPOKES-CS: Cybercamp of Wyoming” program. The goals of the program are to increase interest in cybersecurity careers nationwide; help students understand safe online behavior; and improve teaching methods for cybersecurity content in kindergarten-12 curricula.
