Digigirlz 2017

Digigirlz 2017

A group of Year 8 students recently attended a Digigirlz event at Microsoft

They worked in teams to design an enhancement to an ordinary object and link it to the Internet of Things. They also had to sell their idea to the judges with a presentation. Unfortunately we didn't win, but they enjoyed the challenge and videoing their presentation

The day included some very inspirational talks from women working at Microsoft about their career paths and how to succeed. Speakers included an X-Box executive and the CEO of Microsoft UK 

Overall it was an exciting and fascinating day which will hopefully encourage the girls
