BDPA Indianapolis High School Computer Competition Team (2013)

BDPA Indianapolis chapter was founded in August 2004. They are a relatively young chapter with big dreams as evidenced by the fact that they will be hosting the 36th annual National BDPA Technology Conference in August 2014. But, first things first ... the chapter is working hard to build a legacy with its Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program.

In its fifth year, the chapter's SITES program continues to grow with students from 4 different central Indiana high schools. Sessions take place each Saturday morning from 9AM – 2PM. Students receive training in HTML, PHP, and MYSQL as well as general mentorship and the opportunity to develop written and oral communication skills.
