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.

You are invited to register your school and Year 9 students to Programming Challenge 4 Girls (PC4G) Introduction 1, 2, 3 which we are running in the lead up to the PC4G finale on 21 November. They have been designed to support students in using ALICE and we welcome students of all levels to attend.

Teachers, please provide your nominations to the Recruitment Coordinator at schoolsengagement-engit@unimelb.edu.au
