The Internet contains many sources of free learning content that are available to anyone in the world with Internet access. Although the number of people with mobile phones is increasing in Papua New Guinea, Internet costs are high relative to what locals can afford. This is a problem we wanted to address.
That’s why we created Niunet.
Niunet provides free digital learning material that can be accessed by anyone with a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
At Niunet, we believe learning isn’t just for school students. Information from the Internet can help an employee study project management to earn her next promotion; or a mother expand her sewing business; or a university student research his next paper; or inspire unemployed youth to start a project that helps their community. Learning is for anyone who wants to make their lives better.

We’re proud to present the Meritech GameMaker Class: a free, hands-on, 3-session class to code a simple computer game. Give your daughter a fun way to learn foundational skills in mathematics and coding: programming scripts, conditional logic and basic algebra by making her very own computer game using Scratch!
Scratch teaches the logic behind computer coding.
In this class, we will code a simple game together in Scratch, then coach the girls through designing and coding their very own game or project.
Learning Outcomes: By the end of the class, students will be able to
Use 8 types of script blocks in Scratch
Identify and use nested conditional logic
Use Cartesian (X & Y) coordinates to animate objects on a plane
Interact and manipulate an object in a computer game they made by keyboard and mouse inputs
Create a simple game program as a group project
Design and build their own simple game or project in Scratch
Present their scratch project to small groups in the class.
This course is open to any girls between the ages of 9 and 15 that would like to get an understanding of how to code a game from start to finish! No prior coding experience required.
The sessions run on 3 consecutive Saturdays in October and attendance is required for all 3 sessions (12th, 19th, 26th October). Please ensure you and your daughter can commit to them all.
Registration closes 5:00pm (GMT+10) on the 9th of October 2019.
