Welcome to DigiGirlz 2020 - 10 years in Delaware! The Delaware Department of Technology and Information, the Delaware Department of Education, the Delaware Center for Educational Technology, and Microsoft Corporation are pleased to invite you to Delaware's 2020 DigiGirlz Day. The event will be held May 20, 2020 at the DelTech Terry Campus in Dover. DigiGirlz is an exciting program open to public, private, parochial, and home school classes in Delaware and is available free of charge to girls in the 8th and 9th school grade years or 13-15 years old.

The purpose of the Delaware DigiGirlz program is to address the declining enrollment of young ladies entering the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Our goal is to make a positive impact on girls encouraging them to consider higher education and careers in technology. The goal addresses the needs of upcoming workforce as well as dismisses the myths that young women often harbor about their ability to embrace and lead with technology in their futures.

Upon arriving to the event, your DigiGirlz will choose a track to follow for the day. Examples of track options include: App Design, Robotics, Cyber Security, Chemistry, and Mobile Forensics.
