The HSCC program meets on Saturdays from 1:30pm – 3:30pm starting Saturday April 29, 2017, where the students learn JavaScript, PHP, HTML, SQL Database, Cyber Security and about BDPA history while being mentored by college computer science majors and BDPA professionals. These tools, resources and supports will enable the students to compete at a high level in the HSCC competition at the upcoming National BDPA Conference in the Summer of 2017.

We are looking for highly motivated students who have a strong interest and background in one of the programming skills mentioned above to add to our current team. The students are required to work independently during the week with the online tools and course materials to develop their skills. If selected for the NJ team, the students will be competing for college scholarships at both the state and national levels. The skills that the students learn are valuable and will better prepare them for college and the workplace.

The BDPA New Jersey Chapter has been helping others embrace technology since 1981. This is accomplished through the various programs we support, including our Annual Families in Technology Day, which is held in the Spring, and also by teaching middle and high school students computer programming concepts and presentation skills.
