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.

Speakers include:

  • Shonnah Hughes, Sustaining Passion, Ambition and Resolve for Career Success (SPARCS)
  • Teresa Thomas, Director of Women in Networking (WIN)
  • Kelsey Underwood, CEO of Re-Model

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to meet new role models, get inspired by the pros, and get a hands-on introduction to the world of coding. To join us for our DigiGirlz Workshop, register today.

Lunch will be provided.
