Description

The University of Melbourne's Programming Challenge for Girls (PC4G) introduces Year 9 female students to computer programming with interactive workshops held on their campus.

Students will participate in three 2 hour workshops, where they will try out coding in an approachable, fun, challenging and educational environment through the program ALICE.

These sessions have been designed to support students in using ALICE, where they create animations, build interactive narratives and program simple games in 3D. This program encourages learning through creative exploration, and no prior coding experience is required.

At the end of the school year, these students are invited to compete in the PC4G finale, where they put their coding skills to the test in the final competition.
