More than 100 high school teachers from seven states wrapped up a week-long workshop at the Shreveport Convention Center Friday.

They learned how to infuse cutting-edge cyber education concepts into their subject specialty. The third annual Education Discovery Forum is a project of the Cyber Innovation Center or CIC in Bossier City. The CIC’s cyber curriculum is now taught in 35 states, according to academic outreach coordinator Kevin Nolten.

The Cyber Discovery Camp model was developed by the Cyber Innovation Center in Bossier City. The center's GB Cazes says dozens of high school students and their teachers are being mentored this week by Louisiana Tech University professors at a camp on the Ruston campus. He says the cyber camp concept will be rolled out at other universities, including the University of Baltimore next month.
