Description

MissMakesCode logoA fabulous experience full of fun, developing friendships and learning to code! Our full day program is available these school holidays.

#MissMakesCode is the first initiative in the world created to build confidence and self efficacy in the areas of algorithmic thinking, programming and coding for young girls aged 5-8 years.

Your child will learn key coding concepts through online and offline activities and build upon any existing skills they may have learned in school. Taught by professional teachers, this unique all-girls workshop is a terrific way to introduce your child to coding and game making and build their technology confidence. Hosted at the NAB in The Hall- we have a full day program available to book.

My child has never coded, can she attend?

Yes! Your child will learn the basic coding concepts and can work through the program at her own pace on her own or with support from other participants.

What will she learn?

Girls aged 5-8 years old will learn to build the internet. The sessions incorporate a series of offline activities, including listening to STEM stories and learning and sharing insights about safety on the internet. They will apply the basic coding concepts to be able to customise their own games in a day. The girls become developers and game testers, as they play and share their games. They work together to solve puzzles to build and debug their games whilst forming friendships and having fun.

Who will look after my child?

Our program was made by teachers for students between the ages of 5-8years old. We have a team of dedicated and qualified teachers who facilitate and supervise workshops.

Will my child be photographed?

Your child may be photographed in the context of this event. As a world first, we often have media wanting to visit our team and take footage for newspaper and television. We supervise photographers at all times and ensure they do not disrupt learning. When dropping off your child we will provide you with a release form for both you and your child to sign for photography.

My child has attended a #MissMakesCode course before, can she attend?

Yes! The coding concepts can be applied again and again.

Do you offer refunds?

Due to the nature of our courses and the work that goes in to preparing for your child's attendance, we cannot offer refunds if you are no longer able to attend.
