The BDPA National High School Coding Competition, (HSCC), was founded in 1986 by Dr. Jesse Bemley, of Washington, D.C.
What started as a two-team event between Washington, D.C. and Atlanta, Ga. has grown to over 20 teams of various high school students from chapters throughout the nation.
It’s all designed to introduce our Youth to the field of Information Technology, encourage them to seek higher levels of education, and groom many of them to become our next generation of IT professionals.
Building the Next Generation of Tech Experts!
Involvement in the Professional Development, High School Coding Competition, and Mentoring programs allows you to aid in the personal and professional development of African Americans while raising awareness of issues affecting technology professionals.
Each year, starting in January/February, the BDPA trains local high school students on the fundamentals of coding and life skills. In addition, the BDPA provides professional growth opportunities for college students and adult professionals through the local chapter's professional development and social networking. All participants are then invited to our national conference and the bi-weekly Career and Tech Talks hosted by the National BDPA.
The BDPA Milwaukee invites local students to join the National High School Coding Competition (HSCC) Program and "learn coding!" In the HSCC Program, students are introduced to the exciting field of computers: Learn a variety of computer skills. Discover the wide range of information technology careers. Prepare for the annual High School Computer Competition. All BDPA Milwaukee members are encouraged to volunteer!
