For women of all ages who are curious about code.

Are you curious about programming and how it works? Would you like to explore the basic principles in a female friendly, guided workshop?

Join us at this 3-hour interactive workshop to try your hand at coding, build your own programs and discover the creative world of computing. Absolutely no prior knowledge or programming experience is required – just bring along your curiosity. 

This is a gentle, step-by-step introduction to coding with Scratch, a fully visual and easy to use programming language. You will explore building your own animations and games and we can finish up with a group discussion about programming for social good.

You will need your laptop but if you haven't got access to one don’t worry because we have plenty!
