motivate female students for an IT career

I don’t know if this is the appropriate group to post my message but I’ll go ahead and ask.
I am a young woman in IT (in Wireless Networking) and in a couple of weeks I should give a presentation to a group of female students (11-13 years old) in order to convince them to join an IT career path.
The presentation is one hour long.
How can I motivate them and make this presentation interesting?
Considering their age, I should be less technical as possible, in order not to lose their attention.
I thought about doing some experiments with a wireless network setup. I don’t know if this would be a right approach.
What is your advice? Have you had similar experiences?
Thank you in advance for sharing your opinions and tips on this subject.
