A small group of Year 8 girls were invited to Microsoft’s Headquarters in Reading to take part in an event called DigiGirlz. The purpose of the event is to educate young girls about the opportunities available whilst pursuing STEM-related subjects. They were also joined by Year 11 pupil, Trinity Niessen who is our digital ambassador for the school. The group of 8 Bay House girls joined a team of roughly 100 other young ladies from across the Country, to take on the challenge of developing a piece of technology to help make their local area more sustainable. Not only did they have to come up with the idea, the girls also had to design and develop the programme. They then went to present their idea to a panel of judges and the rest of the DigiGirlz team.
All the girls did amazingly well, and hopefully this will inspire these young ladies into a career within STEM.
