Curiosity Initiative for Schools 2020
In November 2015, Brescia House School in conjunction with Microsoft appointed four Grade 10 girls to represent the School and South Africa as part of the 200 world-wide Microsoft Student Ambassadors. The girls have attended virtual webinars during the year, and were challenged, as part of the program, to run a project that will make a difference in the community. The girls identified that traditionally girls do not choose IT as a career path, nor do many girls select IT as a matriculation subject at school. The Girls, along with their Teacher, Mrs Lyneth Crighton, came up with an idea to host a special elegant dinner for girls, like themselves, who were interested in a career in IT.
Participates attend IT focused workshops during the afternoon, before enjoying a wonderful dinner which includes an interactive panel discussion.
The girls do not pay to attend the CuriosITy Workshop and/or the Dinner. The event relies on the generous sponsorship of corporates, the Guest Speakers and the IT Professionals attending the dinner.
Space is limited and this event is sponsored. If you and/or your girls can not attended after booking tickets, please cancel your tickets so as to allow others to attend, and so that the event does not incur any unnecessary costs.
