DENVER, Colo. — Interested in learning a bit more about your local FBI? FBI Denver will be hosting a few programs for high school teens this summer!

FBI Denver conducts Teen Academies annually across Colorado and Wyoming. Teen
Academies are one-day events where attendees learn about FBI career options, hear a
case presentation, participate in interactive Evidence Response and SWAT
demonstrations, and learn about online safety. Thirty to forty students will be selected to
participate at each of two locations: Loveland, CO on June 18, 2021; and Rock Springs,
WY on July 10, 2021. Applications for the Teen Academies can be found on FBI
Denver’s website and are due on Friday, April 30, 2021.

New in 2021, FBI Denver will be conducting several Cyber Security Teen Bootcamps
(CSTB) in Colorado and Wyoming. During each CSTB, attendees will hear
presentations on cyber security/privacy and have hands-on training with a MacBook Pro,
virtual Windows 10 PC, iPhone 11 and a Google Pixel phone. Each session will be
limited to 10 students, will occur at venues based on the locations of the majority of
interested parties, and will be facilitated by FBI Denver Chief Security Officer Michael
