The U.S. Space and Rocket Center received $100,000 from a local tech company.

The money is to help support the center's Cyber Camp.

The camp started last summer, and it is still in development stages.

Students from across the state are in Huntsville this week attending it.

The camp was developed in the past year with help from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and Cyber Huntsville.

The tech company, Dynetics, has it's headquarters in Huntsville, and they pledged to give the camp $100,000 to help develop the camp.

James Highfield, a student from Mobile, told WAAY 31 he already learned a lot about programming and cyber security.

"It teaches a new generation people skills that are emerging as well as some of the most important things in the industry," he said.

Dynetics will also provide support to the program by proving cyber expertise and guest speakers.
