Girls' Programming Network

Free coding workshops for high school girls and gender minorities.

Edith Dircksey Cowan believed that education was the key to growth, change and improvement. We are proud to continue her legacy by actively advancing the role of women in science, technology, engineering and maths through our part in establishing the Girls’ Programming Network node in Perth.

We encourage high school aged girls and gender minorities from years 7-12 to join GPN Perth and code alongside university students, alumni, teachers and industry partners who volunteer to provide guidance and mentorship throughout full day programming workshops.

Tutors will share experiences and discuss STEM career opportunities with participants. The initiative is a way to connect with a community of fabulous girls interested in computing, IT, and coding.

GPN Perth is now hosted by the UWA Data Institute. Four (one per Term) different, free full day programming workshops are held across the year, all catering to first time programmers through to seasoned coders. GPN is open girls, trans and non-binary folk.

See Girls Programming Network Perth for upcoming workshop details and to register as a Student or volunteer as a Tutor.
