The Sydney Microsoft Store has announced a new partnership with Code Like a Girl, bringing a series of free coding workshops to girls aged 6-15 years old.
The workshops aim to address the need for skilled female information communications technology (ICT) specialists, working to empower and inspire young girls to get involved in coding and encourage this skill for potential future careers in IT industries. The event assumes no prior experience with coding or IT, aimed at beginners.
Connecting like-minded girls who are passionate about coding and technology
- Design and Build a Website: this workshop will cover how to create and edit your own website from start to finish including HTML coding and styling using CSS3
