Earlier this month, Microsoft’s DigiGirlz Boston chapter hosted its annual signature event for teen girls to show them that IT is more than just punching code; there are many exciting career opportunities in the world of technology today. DigiGirlz brings together female students grades 8 through 12 to help break down the stereotype associated with technology, educate them about exciting career opportunities in technology and participate in hands-on computer and technology workshops.
This year’s workshops focused on using technology to design a product, learning Windows development, a tour of Boston’s very own Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) and an “unplugged” view of computer science. The girls also participated in a device showcase and “Create a New Device” session to apply what they learned throughout the day.
The event was attended by more than 100 students from 13 different schools located around the greater Boston area, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
