During the event, students interacted with Microsoft employees and managers to gain exposure to careers in business and technology and got an inside look at what it's like to work at Microsoft. This exciting event provided girls with career planning assistance, information about technology and business roles and thought-provoking exercises.
Students were asked to program a device to assist someone with a disability. The two St George's teams worked hard to create a door bell that could be used by someone with hearing difficulties, making their devices interactive. They were then asked to present their ideas to a panel of judges. A very informative and inspirational day.
