SITES Program (New Jersey, 2015)

BDPA New Jersey and Bloomfield College Coders Camp introduced middle- and high-school students to information technology via the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program. Students participate in 3-hour sessions on Saturdays starting in February to learn application development, database design and web development. The top performing students get the opportunity to compete regionally as well as at the National BDPA Technology Conference. Bloomfield College provide lab space and college students serve as volunteer peer-coaches. These college students also have the opportunity to participate in the technology showcases and Career Fair during the annual conference.

BDPA New Jersey is two weeks away from taking seven students to the annual technology conference being held in Washington DC on August 19-22, 2015. The students will be competing in the High School Computer Competition Program.

The chapter raised 80% of the funds needed but they still need your assistance with the last 20% to ensure that their students can go to Washington DC. The funds are needed to cover lodging and transportation costs. Please make an online donation today of $25 or $50, to BDPA New Jersey Chapter. BDPA is a 501c3 organization approved by IRS so your donation is tax deductible. Please invest in our students as they invest in their future.
