Event description

Description

This summer Code Like a Girl is heading to the final frontier for a coding camp that’s out of this world!

Astro-adventures include:

  • Coding an animation of the solar system with Python!
  • Designing an app with JavaScript!
  • Creating a space quiz for your friends using block-based coding!

On top of a new-found fascination with code, you will gain confidence in your tech sills, meet like-minded girls and have an astronomical amount of fun!

Code Like a Girl’s coding camps complement the Victorian Digital Technologies curriculum. We’re committed to providing girls with a nurturing environment where they can comfortably learn and explore different areas of coding at their own pace, based on their own interests.

At just 20 girls per cohort, our coding camps are small in size to maximise learning outcomes. Breaking down barriers for women to participate in STEM and entrepreneurship is at the core of what we do and we’re committed to encouraging more girls to realise their potential. But you can’t be what you can’t see, so all of our inspirational camp facilitators are female role models who work in the tech and education industries. Students will also hear from guest speakers sharing their real life experiences from within the industry.
