Microsoft invites girls in grades 8-12 to attend Microsoft DigiGirlz. The free event is from 8:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. on April 10 at Cerner. A light breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided.
Microsoft DigiGirlz is designed to dispel stereotypes of the high-tech industry by spotlighting women in the industry and encouraging high school aged girls to think about careers in technology. Girls who attend will:
• Interact with women in technology.
• Learn about and interact with some upcoming technologies, including the Microsoft HoloLens and Notes for Life. HoloLens is an augmented reality headset that select developers and universities are using for 3D modeling, observing human anatomy and more. Notes for Life turns the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and keyboards into a virtual music studio/DJ booth and is being piloted in select schools.
• Network with peers, Microsoft employees and women in Kansas City-based tech companies.
The event is part of K-State Olathe's efforts to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics — or STEM — careers and education to K-12 schools in Greater Kansas City.
Microsoft DigiGirlz High is free but space is limited.
