Girls Who Game
It’s crucial that young women have mentors in STEM, whether that’s a teacher, a parent, or someone in the workforce. Surry County Schools is partnering with Dell Technologies and Microsoft to launch their Girls Who Game program, an initiative focused on increasing young girls’ access to technology to prepare them for success in a digital world. This camp gives female students the opportunity to learn through play, with a focus on building global competencies and computational thinking using Minecraft: Education Edition. The team will work together to solve real-world problems using Minecraft while working with professionals from Dell, Microsoft, and other institutions.
