WE ARE EXCITED TO PARTNER WITH COGNIZANT TO RUN OUR APRIL SCHOOL HOLIDAY CODE CAMPS.
Over three jam-packed days, students will be using several technology platforms to explore character creation, animation and storytelling. Whilst building their skills in areas such as block coding and the basics of HTML/CSS, your budding coder will build confidence, skills and meet new friends.
Code Like a Girl’s Code Camp compliments the Victorian Digital Technologies curriculum. We put a great emphasis on providing girls with a nurturing environment to comfortably learn and explore different areas of coding at their own pace, based on their interests.
Our Code Camp is small in size at around 20 girls per cohort, and led by women who work in the tech and education industry. In addition, students will have guest speakers to share their real life experiences from within the industry. Our facilitators provide girls with inspirational female role models, not only addressing some of the barriers to women’s participation in STEM and entrepreneurship, but also encouraging more girls to realise their potential.
