Participants gain an understanding about what is it like to work at Microsoft through interactions with our products and employees. Hands on learning sessions include programming, graphics, problem solving, video creation, and technology exploration.
This event is available to all female Sophomore, Junior, an d Senior students. See your high school's Career Coordinator for registration forms.
