About The Event

Girl Geek Academy presents a fabulous experience full of fun, developing friendships and learning to code where girls and women* will learn together!

#MissMakesCode is the first initiative in the world created to build confidence and self-efficacy in the areas of algorithmic thinking, programming and coding for primary school girls.

After meeting with Girl Geek Academy, you'll be each set up with coding exercises applicable to your experience & skills.

We will also be discussing gender equality while the girls make new friends and code with their peers.

This is a fabulous opportunity for women to experience coding alongside their girls, as well as the ability speak openly about cyber safety and gender equality issues.

You will need to bring your own tablet or laptop to complete the activities for this workshop. So find yourself a computer and get ready to roll 👩🏾‍💻👩🏻‍💻👩🏿‍💻👩🏼‍💻👩🏽‍💻

* We warmly welcome anyone who identifies as a woman or non-binary.
