In the month of February as we celebrate Black History Month the BDPA New York Chapter annually recognizes Black Family Technology Awareness Week (BFTAW). This year our theme is "Technology is for Everyone in our Community."

Black Family Technology Awareness Week, or BFTAW, is a national public awareness campaign designed to encourage more African Americans to incorporate technology into their daily lives.  The purpose of the event is to help eliminate the science and technology gap among members of the minority community.  By showcasing science and technology in a fun and interactive way, we endeavor to motivate more minority students to pursue careers in these fields. It's also an exciting time for students and families as they spend a full day immersed in a variety of fun and interactive workshops.


On February 23rd (new date), we are sponsoring  the following workshops for the entire family which will be interactive and infomative.
