Our Year learners 8 attended a Digital Her event at Hopwood Hall College which promoted technology and digital resources to girls, of whom there is still a minority taking up careers within these industries.
Digital Her helps to ensure that Manchester remains at the forefront of the digital industry and explained how digital technology is used in a wide range of companies. Our learners met with ladies who are successful in their careers from companies such as GCHQ, AutoTrader, Zen and many more. They completed workshops ranging from creating their own emojis to tracking down a missing person. The girls were exemplary, representing Matthew Moss by asking questions, listening and behaving brilliantly throughout the day.
A competition was set by BJSSLtd for the girls to state how they would use a Raspberry Pi if they were to own one.
Ebony gave a perfect response by using a real world example and promoting accessibility for all.
We are very proud of Ebony and whether she uses her new mini-computer to play games, control her entertainment at home or assists her parents in the workplace we hope she remains enthusiastic about digital and technology in future.
Well done Ebony!
