"SAP hosts GIRLsmarts4tech"
The SAP Palo Alto office turned into a workspace for 60 middle schoolers last week who were there for GIRLsmarts4tech, a workshop on computer science and technology. The girls had a packed day with hands-on sessions about making music on their computers, creating web pages, programming games, and even designing user interfaces. The aim was to jump-start students' interest in computer science by getting them to see the technology behind the things they use every day. Photo by Cheryl Allison.
