The Information Technology (IT) Showcase Program is a subprogram under the S.I.T.E.S program. It was designed to acquaint students with research techniques, advanced mathematics, emerging technologies in computer science and telecommunications, computational science, geographical information systems (GIS), robotics, and public speaking.
Students are allowed to complete an IT research project on a subject of their choice. The top 1 to 2 Philadelphia finalists will receive a stipend to present and demonstrate their research project at the Annual BDPA National Information Technology Showcase to some of the top companies in the world. Accomplishments of these students include receiving scholarships, internships, and college placement.
Students can compete in either the high school showcase or the college showcase. Eligibility and acceptance into the IT Showcase program will be decided by the BDPA Philadelphia Executive Committee.
