The girls work on different aspects of technology, including learning how to use digital cameras, several types of software and the different tools on the Internet.

These research projects must include a podcast, a video, evidence of their own research on the topic and five to 10 external sources. The research must also have both qualitative and quantitative components. In the process the girls learn how to do a well-researched project, how to work with partners and how to use technology to enhance the project.
