BDPA Dallas HSCC Team (2011)

Gilbert Mfitumukiza, Bridget Mfitumukiza, Kiera Robinson and Kayla Rhodes
These are the young people trained by BDPA Dallas chapter to compete in the 2011 national High School Computer Competition (HSCC) championship held last month in Chicago.  

BDPA Dallas created their Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program to expose young people to the fields of computer science and IT.  The chapter seeks to increase the understanding and accessibility of science, technology, engineering and math in historically disenfranchised communities.  The SITES curriculum focused on industry standard programming languages, problem-solving techniques and conceptual design.

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) is working with volunteers to raise college scholarship funds for BDPA Dallas chapter high school students.   Click here to help us if you have time or inclination to do so.
