Empowering the cybersecurity experts of tomorrow to take on their futures with confidence.
Experience Educational Tours has designed Cybersecurity STEAM programs in collaboration with the Education Service Center (ESC), Region 20 in Texas to transform students’ lives by preparing them for cutting-edge careers and expand their goals in higher education.
One of the fastest growing job sectors in the U.S. is cybersecurity and Texas ranks second in the nation for cybersecurity careers. Currently, there is more than 30% estimated growth in Texas’ cybersecurity industry in the coming years with upwards of 4,000 job vacancies. Highly skilled individuals are required to fill this gap in employment, so Experience is building strategic partnerships with innovative ESCs and districts across Texas. The goal is to lay the groundwork for a state model that connects top students with industry leaders and world-class universities that specialize in cybersecurity.
The way students are prepared for successful careers in cybersecurity requires a dramatic shift towards identifying top talent and setting up career pathways in their education. Experience and ESC 20 collaborated on an innovative cybersecurity program that gives students a chance to attend top universities while in middle or high school, and work with cybersecurity companies to learn from the experts. This initiative answers the need for skilled talent among the cybersecurity industry, which is currently at zero-percent unemployment and is hiring students to fill vacancies as more cybersecurity threats are recognized every day. Providing cybersecurity programs for students before college is imperative for the industry and for students to achieve success in their personal and professional lives.
