Programming Challenge for Girls (PC4G)

PC4G is an annual one day event to introduce Year 9 school girls to computer programming.

No prior knowledge or experience is necessary as PC4G events include tutorial sessions teaching you about the programming language we use, which is called Alice.

What it’s about?

PC4G wants girls to experience the fun of programming in teams of two, and engage them before they make their senior high school subject choices. It’s designed to be approachable, fun, challenging and educational.
