COME ALONG TO OUR JANUARY SCHOOL HOLIDAY CODING CAMP!

You'll use coding to create digital art, learn how to build a website with HTML and CSS, and complete challenges to bring their creativity to life. All in a supportive environment encouraging problem solving skills! Not only will the students walk away with newfound programming experience, they will gain confidence in their skills, meet like minded girls and have a huge amount of fun!

Code Like a Girl’s coding camp compliments the SA 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 coding camp is small in size at around 20 girls per cohort, and led by women who work in the tech and education 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. In addition, students will meet guest speakers and facilitators to share their real life experiences from within the industry.
