Code the Future event 21 July

Code the future eventA recent report from Digital Careers, Intel and the Australian Computing Society states “Computer education, with a focus on Computer Science, has become a core subject in the Australian Curriculum and the focus of national innovation initiatives. Equal participation by girls, however, remains unlikely based on their engagement with computing in recent decades”…read more here.

Code the Future is enabling widespread access to children, both boys and girls, to learn to code alongside our volunteer developers. Research tells us that many girls dismiss careers in IT before the age of 15. Bridging the gender gap and creating diversity in the future starts now.

During the meetup we’ll hear from a range of speakers sharing their insights, advice and strategies for engaging and supporting young girls in computer science.

Come along to share and discuss your thoughts, and be connected with educators and developers a part of our community. We’ll also be sharing some new website features.
