National IT Showcase Backgrounder

The 2016 National BDPA IT Showcase was powered by Eli Lilly & Company and Johnson & Johnson.  Launched during the 2003 annual National BDPA Technology Conference in Philadelphia, annual regional and national IT Showcase events allow student presenters from educational institutions across the globe, to present and demonstrate their research. The presentations represent advanced computing and technical topics presented by college and high school students to an audience of corporate representatives, IT professionals, and students.

Students participate in this 2-day event held during the annual National BDPA Technology Conference and Career Fair. The focus of this event includes, but is not limited to, intelligent technologies (i.e., smart toys, machine learning, and genetic algorithms, etc.), wearable computing technologies, autonomous vehicles, mobile technologies, parallel computing technologies, cybersecurity, computing curricula, and  business intelligence.

Student presentations and research projects are reviewed by a panel of industry judges in two primary categories—college and high school. Awards are made in each category for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. National awards are presented during the annual Awards Presentation at the end of the National IT Showcase session. Each participant is professionally recognized by National BDPA with his or her Certificate of Appreciation.
