Invitation to Attend FSU's Cyber Security Education Symposium
by Kathryn Cox - Sunday, March 1, 2015, 9:44 PM

Good Morning AGORA parent and students.

The purpose of this email is to thank you for the continued support in the AGORA program. During our initial sessions, students were exposed to programming concepts and security through the usage of modern day APIs and mobile applications with which they were familiar.  Instead of the traditional approach of being lectured of the theory and fundamentals of computer science, a series of engaging and immersive activities were executed. Each session was built off of previous concepts, and is designed to reinforce programming skills starting from a very basic level, and gradually progressing to more advanced concepts over the weeks.

To continue our intent of exposing students to the cyber environment, Fayetteville State University (FSU)'s 2nd Cyber Security Education Symposium will be held at FSU’s Student Center on Friday, March 13, 2015. In co-ordination with AGORA grant partner Cumberland County School, an excused absence is granted for AGORA students that choose to attend. FSU requests that participant students arrive at Rudolph Jones Students' Center (there will be signs and campus police directing traffic). Student should arrive at 8:00AM with a parent pickup time of 3:00PM.

Thanks in advance for your continued support.
