Invited schools should identify two students (8th, 9th, and 10th graders) and one teacher to participate in our 4-day program. In addition to the learning activities, CyberCity attendees dine in D-Hall, meet with James Madison faculty and staff, learn about college admissions, and discuss careers in business and technology.
CyberCity participants talk to current students about college life, tour the campus, and experience what it is like to be a part of the JMU community. There are many opportunities for students and teachers to meet, make new friends, engage in new experiences and have fun!
Participation in CyberCity is by invitation only and is first come, first serve. All CyberCity participants receive scholarships from the College of Business, JMU alumni, or businesses interested in promoting technology education and supporting efforts to attract underrepresented students to JMU. There are no registration, lodging, meal, or activity expenses.
CyberCity was honored to be a Finalist for the 2012 Governor's Technology Award!
