HIPSCIENCE INTRODUCES DIGIGIRLZ TO MANTIS™ STEM PROBES AND SENSORS.
Another of the Microsoft YouthSpark programs, DigiGirlz, is designed to provide high school girls with a better understanding of what a career in technology means.
Laron Walker, CEO of HipScience, LLC was on hand to introduce the girls to some of the Mantis products, and how the electronic devices can make learning relevant to real-life job scenarios. One of the products demonstrated, the Climate Sensor, showed how they could chart weather indicators. They were also exposed to coding via the Scratch interface that is available when using the Mantis open platform.
Microsoft is proud to offer technology programs that target youth. This one-day event, held at multiple Microsoft locations worldwide, is designed to provide high school girls with a better understanding of what a career in technology is all about.
