This will ensure that we can set up all devices with the correct connectivity settings and software beforehand to maximise our time in the workshops. Code Like a Girl do not take any responsibility for damage or loss of any devices brought to the workshops by students.

My child has never coded. Is this program suitable?
Yes! Your child will learn basic coding concepts using both online and offline activities and games. She will work through the program at her own pace.

My child has attended a coding class before. Will this still be useful?
Yes! This is a great opportunity for your budding coder to meet like-minded friends and apply her skills to new projects. There will be a number of open-ended activities that will extend your child and keep them feeling engaged and challenged.
