Microsoft DigiGirlz camps and day programs bring business and technology skills to students worldwide. As technology evolves, it is imperative that students grow with it — not only in their personal lives, but also in their educational and career paths. DigiGirlz courses in areas such as Visual Basic and HTML help girls apply a connection of technology and math in a real-world setting. Girls gain the opportunity to hear from Microsoft senior executives and community leaders. In addition to classroom learning, girls interact one-on-one with Microsoft employees through product demonstrations, tours and job shadowing of employees with similar interests. Hands-on technology courses also teach students computer skills such as product design, graphic design and resume building. By the end of 2010, more than 13,200 students will have attended the Microsoft DigiGirlz Technology Programs,” writes Microsoft.
