International Girls in ICT Day is an opportunity for girls and young women to see and experience technology in a whole new light. The initiative, backed by all International Telecommunications Union Member States, aims to create a global environment that empowers and encourages girls and young women to consider careers in the growing field of information and communications technologies (ICTs). International Girls in ICT Day is celebrated every year on the fourth Thursday of April and will next be observed on April 26, 2018.

There will be more than 2 million jobs for people with advanced digital skills in the coming years. Despite the obvious benefits, many girls never even consider a career in ICTs. At the same time, many companies are looking to increase the number of women in the sector. Giving girls and young women opportunities for “hands-on” experience, whether by developing mobile apps, learning coding or programming robots, can help raise participation rates, enabling both girls and technology companies to reap the benefits of greater female participation in the ICT sector.

High school students gathering at all six of our participating Baker College campuses will have the opportunity to build and program their own drones, as well as learn to protect them through cyber defense/security strategies. At the end of the day, the students will take their drones home with them to remind them of their successful accomplishments.

We want to thank our generous sponsors for providing funds for the purchase of drones.
