Attention all STEM Supporters


One of BDPA's goals is to empower IT Professionals by providing opportunities for leadership, networking, and career growth. Our annual Chicago Chapter Education Fundraiser raises funds to continue hosting 50+ students for our High School Computer Competition (HSCC) program which is conducted over a seven-month period. The top five students will compete at the National BDPA HSCC for college scholarships and prizes. The program is open to students in 8th through 12th grades from the greater Chicago area. Their training topics include Operating Systems, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, Ajax, PHP, Computer Science, Project Management, Object Oriented Programming and the Art of Presentations. This year's national event is being held in Atlanta, GA. August 10 - 13, 2016.
