ROME, NY — The Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate’s (AFRL/RI) STEM Outreach Program, in partnership with the Griffiss Institute (GI), is excited to announce a another new STEM initiative for 2021, the Air Force Virtual Cyber Club.

The Air Force Virtual Cyber Club is a free after school club that will provide students with hands on learning in the areas of cyber defense, programming, computer administration, networking, critical thinking, applied learning, and engineering methods and reasoning.

Computer requirements: PC or Mac with a microphone, camera and internet connection. A tablet or smartphone will not do because the students will need access to a keyboard to type with.

“Fostering cybersecurity education is essential to protecting the Nation’s critical infrastructure. The Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate is excited to offer this cyber after school club to high school students. This could be their first step in becoming future cyber warriors,” says Jeff DeMatteis, the AFRL/RI STEM Program Manager.
