Girls Are Full STEAM Ahead! Lightbulb Coding

event date: 
Saturday, 13 October 2018 - 10:00am to 2:15pm

Lighbulb Coding

This workshop, for girls, aged 14 and over, is led by Girl Geek Academy and will introduce the Python programming language as a way to interact with colourful intelligent lightbulbs. We will learn how to control an intelligent lightbulb using code! 

Beginner and more advanced coders welcome - the only requirements are that you are a willing participant in stepping out of our comfort zone, that you talk to those around you about the code you are writing and that you are really switched on!

 

This program is provided with the support of Creative Victoria through Engaging Audiences. WAG, in partnership with Girl Geek Academy is excited to present a program of sessions, workshops and panel events which will inspire and encourage girls to take part in STEAM subjects, lessons and hopefully careers.

Participants will need to bring:

  • lunch, snacks and water
  • pencil case and notebook
  • a laptop with Anaconda and Jupyter Notebook installed (this is quick and easy - just ask for instructions!)
