Vic ICT for Women’s agenda is driving actions that change our world through programs that positively affect the lives of our members and the industries they work in, and engaging with those that shape our future pipeline – the students and graduates.

Every year at this time we look back in amazement at what has been accomplished.  In collaboration with our members, sponsors and volunteers we have enhanced and extended our programs to facilitate entry, retention and progression of women working in ICT.  2016 has been a year of high activity and momentous achievements with increased member participation and active involvement lead by champions of change.

All current members of Vic ICT for Women (including employees of Corporate and Education Sector members) are invited to participate in our AGM to celebrate the progress we have made in 2016 and learn about the changes in store for 2017.

    Programming Challenge 4 Girls

    Deakin University Burwood Campus

    Thursday 17th August 2017

    PC4G is an event designed to introduce computer programming to Year 9/10 secondary school girls. It seeks to provide an opportunity for girls to experience programming and to understand the rewarding challenges that are provided through the combination of logic, problem-solving and creativity.

    Teams of 2 girls will complete a tutorial on the innovative 3D programming environment Alice (http://www.alice.org) and use their new found skills developing some fun animations in the morning. In the afternoon they will then create their own storyboard and develop their own animation.

    Schools are encouraged to send at least two teams who should be accompanied by a teacher. Whilst the challenge is underway, teachers will have the opportunity to participate in professional development and familiarisation activities.

    The Programming Challenge 4 Girls was first conducted in 2008 in Auckland New Zealand.  Based on an earlier (1988) initiative Young Women's Programming Contest (YWPC),  it has grown to become a nationwide and international event.  Read more about the history of this event.

    Vic ICT for Women encourages all of its members to promote participation by students from secondary colleges across metropolitan and regional areas.
