Girls Programming Network
The Girls' Programming Network (GPN) is a program developed and run by girls for girls. GPN is a unique opportunity to make friends, meet people who have similar interests, and learn about the tech industry.
Each school term, ECU's School of Science runs GPN. The day is targeted at high school girls in years 7-12 interested in learning how to program or improve their coding skills. A day where you learn both the theoretical and practical aspects of computer science. No coding experience is required as we will teach you, and by the end of the day, you will have made a small but satisfying program! FYI - each term is different, each workshop is different but what is the same is that we do this all in python! Join us for a fun day learning new things, playing games, and meeting new people!
