On Tuesday, Sept. 27, San Clemente High School hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of a Cisco Systems Learning Lab, which gives students the chance to learn about cyber security and informational technology support systems.
“Students will learn to use computer networking techniques to build systems, install software imaging, and provide homeland and cyber computer security,” according to a press release from Capistrano Unified School District. “In the classroom, they will be able to monitor and track cyber-attacks happening in real-time throughout the United States.”
The lab was paid for through a $3.25 million Career Technical Education (CTE) grant, according to the release.
The CTE grant funds both the Cisco Learning Lab and the newly dedicated Capistrano Valley High School ‘Tech-Knowledgy’ Lab in three phases over the next three years. Each phase is designated for the maintenance and enhancement of CTE courses and the labs.
