A purported dog-napping helped foster girls’ interest in technology – and the bevy of careers it offers – at an event at Whatcom Community College Saturday, May 8. Girls Go Tech was all-day affair devoted to solving the fake kidnapping of the dog, named Bailey, and the 22 girls who attended participated in three workshops devoted to providing clues to finding Bailey. Each workshop was put on by a department at the community college and was intended to show the girls how applicable a knowledge of technology can be in a variety of careers, said Lori Gardner, an organizer of the event. “It’s a nice exposure to different ways that technology is used,” Gardner said.
