Dr Michelle Ellis speaking to a group of young women about the Girls' Programming Network.
Advancing the role of women in IT: Girls teaching girls how to code!
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 the following initiative.
ECU’s School of Science would like to invite high school aged girls from Years 7 -12 to come along and code alongside ECU students, alumni and industry partners who are there to guide you through the programming workshops. The tutors will share experiences and discuss STEM career opportunities with you. Join us and meet some other fabulous girls interested in computing, IT, and coding.
ECU hosts four different GPN workshops over the year catering for first time programmers as well as seasoned coders! With women from Perth’s IT community and students from the Perth’s universities, you will be guided through the creation of your own game or app, meet likeminded people and learn about the tech industry.
