Canberra Girls' Programming Network

The Canberra branch of GPN Australia

Announcing the August 2019 Canberra Girls' Programming Network Workshop


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 August 10 2019!

Please register now by going to the registration page and returning your completed forms to ASD.


We’ll be doing the NCSS Challenge!

The National Computer Science School teams up with Grok Learning every year to run the NCSS Challenge! The NCSS Challenge is an opportunity to develop your python skill over five weeks, and the Girls’ Programming Network will get you started! You’ll solve real world problems and compete against students all over the world.

So that we can create accounts with Grok Learning for the NCSS Challenge, each attendee will need to provide an email address as a part of the registration process. Please note: The nominated email address will not be added to any mailing list, including Grok Learning or the Canberra GPN and will only be used for the purpose of the NCSS Challenge. For more information and terms and conditions please visit
