FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — Dozens of girls from middle school and high school are spending time at a college in Fort Dodge this week to learn about science, technology and industrial jobs.

Organizers of the annual "Diva Tech" at Iowa Central Community College say the event exposes young women to careers they may not have considered. Topics include electrical systems, computer networking and engineering.

Industrial Tech Associate Phyllis Minnihan says employers in these various fields like to hire women.

High school students participated in the event Monday through Wednesday. Middle school students will be in attendance Wednesday through Friday. It's now in its eighth year.
