Excited to have launched Girl Geek Academy! 
MANIFESTO. Boldly going where no girl geeks have gone before. There are things to learn, mistakes to make and fun to be had. Where we go, we go together. We support-forward: we are there for each other before we even know we need help. We sometimes say no: We aren't about being unhealthy, ...

What an amazing weekend! I loved organising and running She Hacks Melbourne. So many talented women who created all these wonderful MVPs! https://www.hackerleague.org/hackathons/she-hacks/hacks/
Hackathons are held just about every weekend somewhere in Australia, but one held this last weekend had a pretty significant point of difference.

Cool!
 
Hey G+ followers! As you might have heard http://goo.gl/RV8YP, we’ll be launching   #MakerCamp    right here in one week. I’m +Nick Raymond   your Camp Director, and to give you an idea of what’s coming, I’ve put together a few fun projects we can build this week, to get everyone ready for camp! 

Today, I'm going to show you two projects that use duct tape to make awesome crafts that you can use every day. I don't know about you, but whenever I want to give someone flowers for a special occasion, they seem to wilt right away. Big bummer! Next time, give that special someone duct tape roses and never deal with dead flowers again. Follow along with the instructions in the photo album below and you'll have a bundle or roses in no time.

Materials for Realistic Duct Tape Rose:
-Red duct tape
-Green duct tape
-Wire
-Red maker (optional)
-Green marker (optional)

The second project is a utilitarian duct tape wallet that you can make yourself. All you need is a roll of your favorite colored duct tape and you can make a wallet within a few minutes. The instructions are located just after the steps for the Duct Tape Rose, so click through the photo album to see each step. This is a quick project, which means you can make multiple wallets for you and your friends, and try new styles, sizes, and colors. Our Junior Camp Counselor +Ibby Ghirann   used two contrasting colors to add accents for the pockets, but don't stop there! As always, be sure to share your creations with us. Take pictures and use the #MakerCamp  hashtag so we can find them.

Materials for Duct Tape Wallet:
-Roll of duct tape
-Scissors


Fun Facts:
1. Duct tape was used to repair the lunar rover (great shot from the moon): http://goo.gl/bpg1G

2. Duct tape saved the life of the Apollo 13 astronauts, by allowing them to build a CO2 filter (one of the most extreme examples of DIY-ness): http://goo.gl/3l9OI

3. Wikipedia says duct tape shouldn't actually be used for ducts. It's named after the duck cloth it was made from during WW2.

Love this interview with runner-up Jackie from She Hacks! 
Kat Loughrey recently caught up with She Hacks runner-up Jackie Antig, on her first-time hackathon experience. If you somehow missed it, Melbourne recently played host to its first ever all female ...

Hangout with women in tech+Google Australia 

Why is it important to have a diverse workforce in computing and technology? What opportunities are out there for women in software engineering in Australia?
 
Join a Hangout with Google engineers Susannah Raub and Katie Bell as they explain why they’re passionate about increasing the impact of women in all aspects of technology. Hosted by +Alan Noble, we’ll also cover how Google is bringing together and celebrating technical women through various scholarships, internships and more.

Look out for our Hangout at +Google Australia on Wednesday 4th July at 1:30 PM Sydney local time (AEST).

Please reshare and if you have any questions about women in technology, add them here to this thread.

I was speaking to Giselle Rosman and Rebecca Fernandez about what we can do to encourage more girls to choose to study and work with technology. The research all shows that girls do not have role mode...
