Microsoft is getting a boost of girl power this week.Close to 100 girls are getting a behind-the-scenes look at the technology industry at this week's Digigirlz Camp.

They're getting hands-on experience with things like designing and testing video games.

The camp is part of an effort to get more girls interested in technical careers. Microsoft says it wants to get rid of the stereotype that women don't succeed in the tech industry.
