What is the Girls’ Programming Network?

The Girls’ Programming Network (GPN) is a program developed and run by girls and for girls. Started by a group of female IT students in Sydney, it’s targeted at high school girls interested in IT, particularly those interested in learning to program or improving their software development skills. We hold a workshop in Cairns every term.

This Term’s Project

We’re going to be creating a two-player text-based Tic Tac Toe game. We’ll be learning the Python programming language. If you already know some python you’ll take your skills to the next level by adding extensions, maybe even adding some artificial intelligence.

Who can come

GPN projects are designed for high school girls. But interested upper primary school girls are also welcome to attend. If you are a girl who is interested in IT, maths or science you should give GPN a try!

What you need to know

You don’t need to know anything to come to GPN!

Whether you are a beginner or a programming pro we’ve got a class for you to join at GPN.

What to bring

You don’t need to bring anything! We provide the computers, lunch and anything else we need to do the workshop.  You might want to bring a water bottle, if you like to take notes you can bring a pen and paper.
