Over the weekend, a group of St Mark’s girls took part in a Girls' Programming Network workshop at ECU Joondalup, where women teach girls how to code in Python. The event is held once a term, and this time, there were 70 students with 20 mentors.
St Mark's participants included Year 7 students Ruby Spath, Asha Pressley, Ella Jackson-Pierce, Hayley Van-Zyl, Summer Elkin, Siobhan Symonds, and Ashlyn Cole.
There were coding activities, bingo, talks from mentors in industry about how they use coding in their job, and the opportunity to make friends with other like-minded girls. The girls had a great time and can’t wait for the next one!
