Microsoft DigiGirlz a success for Rhode Island

Microsoft brought their successful event DigiGirlz to Rhode Island for the first time on October 19th. Davies co-hosted one hundred 8th grade girls from 10 Rhode Island middle schools to interact with Microsoft employees, invited speakers, and Davies Pre-Engineering Technology faculty to gain exposure to careers in business and technology. This exciting event provides girls with a full day of hands-on thought-provoking technology exercises including creating an electronic circuit, exploring robotics, and making an app for a smartphone.
