VIC, Melbourne, August 16th
A free IT career showcase for Victorian school girls from years 5-12
Go Girl Go For IT have been inspiring girls to choose careers in IT since 2001. This free all-day event is designed to engage and excite girls to consider a career in IT. This year, the event has attracted over 2,000 students from 73 Victorian schools, years 5 to 12. The biennial event challenges the perception that a career in ‘IT’ is restricted to coding through inspiring students with female role models and showcasing technology of the future.
At this event, the girls will learn about the incredible range of vocational avenues available in IT through presentations, hands-on workshops and an action-packed sponsor expo. The agenda aims to help the girls discover what a career in IT could mean for them. This free event also subsidises travel for all schools, both metro and regional, and therefore relies solely on generous sponsorship and passionate efforts of hundreds of volunteers. Registration for the event is done via all Victorian primary and secondary schools.
