BDPA IT Showcase

The BDPA IT Showcase is an advanced technology forum where High School and College students from across the nation demonstrate their research and theories in the fields of information technology. Papers will be published in the IT Showcase Proceedings. The purpose of this program is to encourage more students of color to advance their education to the Ph.D. level in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) curriculum.

The projects focus on various “advanced thought” topics including; database technology, web design technology, wired and wireless communication technology, IT security, data mining, soft computing, high performance computing, cloud computing, virtual technologies, nanotechnology, robotics, operating systems, IT certification, social media and much more.

The Showcase presentations consist of demonstrations where applicable. Three awards (First, Second and Third Prize) are made in each of two categories: High School and College (undergraduate).

Over the past few years there were 46 undergraduate papers and 74 high school papers presented from students in 14 states, 33 high schools, 12 universities and three community colleges. Some of the presentations over the past few years are entitled: Artificial Intelligence Applications in the Military, Can Cloud Computing Eradicate Hard Drive Storage Systems, Fourth Generation Mobile Communications Networks, Nanotechnology in High Performance Computing, Positron Emission Tomography, Robotics and Bioinformatics in Healthcare Industry.
