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.

Registrations are now open! Schools are able to register two teams (2 persons per team) and we have a capacity of 30 teams in total for the challenge. The first 30 teams who are registered will compete.

Deadline to register is Friday 27 October.


Any questions contact the schools coordinator:

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. Over the course of a year we hold three two-hour tutorial sessions and a finale.

Tutorial sessions have been designed to support students in using ALICE and we welcome students of all levels to attend.
