The Black Data Processing Associates (BDPA) New Jersey Chapter is hosting a High School Computing Program Open House on Jan. 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Bloomfield College.

The program is the signature STEM program offered for high school students by the BDPA and has been offered to youth from the surrounding communities since the 1980s.

Students will acquire skills that will enable them to work as a team to develop full stack applications. In addition, to receiving a six week introductory computer science curriculum using the Python MC curriculum, students will participate in local and regional hack-a-thons, and meet entrepreneurs who have developed applications.

The program culminates in the annual coding competition held in Atlanta at the the end of August.
