Get inspired to pursue your dreams with technology!
This free, 2-hour DigiGirlz Workshop at your Microsoft Store is a fun way for girls in middle school and high school (ages 14-18) to understand why computer science is important, and to use
computer science to enhance things they already love doing, both now and in the future. What’s more, they’ll get an inside peek at what it’s like to work in technology; learn how to pursue their passion; and see that a successful career in technology is within
their reach. The Workshop includes an inspiring presentation from real, local women in the industry and a Q&A session.
During the second hour, the girls will also get hands-on with our Hour of Code session, which teaches coding fundamentals. At the end of the Workshop, they’ll see cool resources that can
be used to learn how to make awesome stuff with computer science.
