High School Computer Competition Open House
Detroit, MI 48202
Saturday, January 10, 2015 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EST)
The BDPA Detroit Chapter is having an open house to introduce local-area parents and students, teachers, school administrators, community organizers and all others to our High School Computer Competition (HSCC). Here at the open house you will be able to have your high school student apply to be in the program as well.
The HSCC classes will be taught in Downtown Detroit on Saturdays and introduces high school students to the basics of modern web technologies. The students will take away real-world knowledge of these technologies that are in-demand and that will give them a great understanding into aspects of computer technology and engineering. The students that will be chosen to participate in the class will also learn project management skills and how to collaborate with each other in order to complete large projects.
The technologies and skills that we will be covering are:
- HTML 5
- CSS 3
- Responsive Web Design
- Cyber Security
- Project Management
Students that participate in the HSCC competition are eligible to apply for scholarships from companies such as State Farm, HP, Oracle, Eli Lilly and others. In 2014, the national organization awarded almost $119,000 in scholarships to students.
Near the completion of the class, 3-5 students will be chosen to represent Detroit at the BDPA National Conference where they will be competing against 19 other teams from around the country to determine who can build the best web app.
We hope to see you at the open house so that you can learn more about the program, meet members of the BDPA Detroit Chapter and have your high school student apply to be in our 2015 HSCC Program.
