The Canberra Girls’ Programming Network is a community for female students to learn about computer programming and technology through hands-on workshops. It gives girls exposure to female role models across academia, government and industry.

Our next workshop will be held on the 5th of November.


The workshop topic is Microcontrollers.

We’ll be using Nicta ED1 boards to make LEDs flash, text appear on screen and learn about binary numbers.
