Air Force Association CyberPatriot Advanced CyberCamp was June 17-21 at the Hands-On Science Center in Tullahoma. The camp is sponsored by the Arnold Air Force Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Program.

Those participating in the CyberCamp were area middle school students ages 11-14. Many of them are members of their school’s CyberPatriot teams as well as Civil Air Patrol teams.

Andrea Sherrill, who taught the camp, is the commander of her CyberPatriot team and an upcoming senior at Coffee County Central High School. She is also the Corps Commander of the JROTC program at the high school. Matthew McCullough, a sophomore at CCCHS, assisted Sherrill in leading and teaching the students. McCullough is also on the CCCHS CyberPatriot team and will be serving as commander of the team during the 2019-2020 school year.

To end the weeklong activities, the CyberPatriot Advanced Cybercamp students had a competition on their last day and put to use all the skills they learned during the week.
