Microsoft holds ‘digi camp’ for students

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Students in Albuquerque are getting the opportunity to participate in a free Microsoft “digi camp.”

Starting Monday, seventh and eighth grade students will get first-hand experience and knowledge directly from innovators working at Microsoft.

Mayor R.J. Berry met with company representatives last year in Washington D.C. and invited them to bring the program to the Duke City.

The mayor says he wanted to get kids engaged in technology and thinking about high tech jobs.

Several local business leaders and non-profits donated the computers the students will use at camp.
