Experts are forever trying to predict the jobs of the future. But you don’t need a brain surgeon to tell you that – like technology – healthcare will be around for the long-term. But in recent years the prognosis for healthcare has become increasingly more technical, giving birth to the MedTech industry – a dual-diagnosis we’re bloody excited about!
Code red? Code blue? Let’s leave the medical jargon in the ED. Your favourite GirlGang has a finger on the pulse and will teach you all the necessary code to cure what ails ya.
By the time we discharge you, your file will include each of the following:
Worried about your latent coding skills? Take a few deep breaths and lay back, because our team of experts are the best in the business when it comes to uncovering technical talent. We won’t even need to run any tests!
Our camps are so much more than just code. We’ll give your curiosity the chance to tinker and grow your technical confidence. But most importantly, we’ll help you find your crew by introducing you to like-minded young women. Because after all, laughter still is the best medicine.

Code Like a Girl’s coding camps complement the National Digital Technologies curriculum. We’re committed to providing girls with a nurturing environment where they can comfortably learn and explore different areas of coding at their own pace, based on their own interests.
At just 20 girls per cohort, our coding camps are small in size to maximise learning outcomes. Breaking down barriers for women to participate in STEM and entrepreneurship is at the core of what we do and we’re committed to encouraging more girls to realise their potential.
But you can’t be what you can’t see, so all of our inspirational camp facilitators are female role models who work in the tech and education industries. Students will also hear from guest speakers sharing their real life experiences from within the industry.
