    Women in Tech is not an event about women in tech, it is for women in tech.

    Alongside the national push to bring the next age of economic prosperity for Australia, comes a collective effort to drive innovation across public and private sectors by increasing diversity. For organisations to remain competitive they must build the right conditions to encourage more women into, and advance those within the tech sector.

    VIC ICT for Women are proud to support Women in Tech, an event that brings together senior female ICT professionals from across all industries to facilitate opportunities to network, share experiences and discuss strategic solutions to the key challenges facing the sector.

    Full details on the event program can be found by downloading the conference brochure

    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.
