Here is another activity that is coming soon from Microsoft.  As described at in an MSDN Blog:

Minister Jodi McKay MP keynoted a recent Females in Telecommunications & Technology luncheon to celebrate International Women’s Day. During the event, she highlighted one of the biggest challenges facing Women in Technology: One in five Australians studying to work in ICT was female, and the number is currently in decline.

On the 24th of March, Microsoft Sydney office will be starting the first in a series of events to combat this issue, hosting Girls from Years 9-11 from High Schools all over Sydney for the first Australian DigiGirlz day.

I’d like to try and take some of my students to this opportunity.  Just hope I get it to happen!!
