Digital Girl, Inc. Moves into New Digs!!!
March 1, 2018 marked a new milestone for Digtial Girl, Inc. as we moved our administrative office into 1958 Fulton Street in Bedford Stuyvesant. This was a much anticipated move and will allow us to host workshops at our home location.
Digital Girl, Inc. turned 3 years old! Although a party to celebrate would have been loads of fun, DGI thought it more important to use the occasion for an inspiring and teaching moment. In coordination with Computer Science Education Week, we hosted a screening of the documentary "Without a Net: The Digital Divide in America".
Even as technology becomes more affordable and internet access seems increasingly ubiquitous, a digital divide between rich and poor remains. For children in underserved school districts, deficient access to technology can hinder them from learning tech skills that are crucial to succeed in today's economy.
The event was presented in collaboration with Verizon (the film's producer) and National Grid.
