CyberPDX is on for 2020 in a new remote format! Camp will run between August 3-13, with the following general schedule:

Current Draft Schedule, June 2020

In order to make it easier for folks to fit CyberPDX into their current schedules (and save us all from too much Zoom exhaustion), CyberPDX will be split across a two week period.

  • The total time commitment, spread across the 2-week period, is 30 hours.
  • Participants will receive a ~$1300 stipend for their full participation in camp activities and for delivering 2 written lesson plans at the end of the two week period. See our Curriculum Repository for sample lesson plans from past camps.
  • We will meet via Zoom for 2 hours each Monday-Thursday morning between August 3 – August 13. During this time, participants will engage in synchronous instructional activities in four different threads: literature, cryptography, programming, and policy.
  • Camp faculty will be available for optional drop-in consultation from 2-3p every day.
  • Participants will engage in a set of asynchronous enrichment activities throughout the week at their convenience.
  • Participants will also meet in small groups of 2-3 to collaborate on lesson plan development throughout the 2 week period. These affinity groups will be self-selected and allow you to build relationships with your fellow teachers across grades and subjects, map out how cyber curriculum can align with district/state standards, and develop and pilot custom lesson plans.
