Friends Who Are Going
Event description


A fabulous experience full of fun, developing friendships and learning to code! Our full day program is available this coming 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 a professional teacher, 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 creative and vibrant ARTea in Port Melbourne we have a full day program available to book.

What time should I drop my child off?

Our class starts at 9am with drop off available from 8am. Pick up is available between 430 and 515pm

Please allow time during drop off to complete and sign photography release and emergency contact forms.

What is the format of the day?

We start the day with playtime while children arrive and settle in. From 9am we begin class, delving in to concepts, before we have a break for a story and brain food. Next, hands-on practice with children pair coding on laptops, or individually on their ipad.

Food and friendship is important, so we have a lunch break and learn more about each other before getting back learning in the afternoon. We have an additonal break in the afternoon and wrap up class around 4 or 4.30.

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?

Your child will learn the basic coding concepts and algorithmic thinking.

Who will look after my child?

Our program was made by teachers for students between the ages of 5-8 years old. We have a team of dedicated and qualified teachers who will facilitate and supervise the 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. When dropping off your child we will provide you with a release form for both you and your child to sign.

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

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

Can my child attend all three days?

We do not recommend your child attend all three full days, as the lesson plans are the same for each day.

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.
