Don’t miss Girlstart’s first virtual conference in Second Life on July 22, 2009! The Project IT Girl Showcase in Second Life will take place on the Educators Coop Island at 2pm CST (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Educators%20Coop%201/28/112/24).

During the conference, attendees will learn about the findings from Girlstart’s very first comprehensive program for high school girls. If that wasn’t enough, we’ll also be sharing examples of our curriculum and other resources that made the IT Girl program a success!

Please pre-register for this FREE conference by sending an email to Zakiyyah@girlstart.org and stay tuned to this blog for more info.

This conference is going to be wicked cool so it’s time to wake up  your SL avatar if already have one. Those new to Second Life – don’t worry. Use the links and resources below to download the FREE software and get started on your journey into Second Life.

Girlstart is a Texas CPE provider approved by the Texas Education Agency and 3 CPE hours will be given for this virtual conference.
