“The 2016 camp will offer new opportunities for previous attendees to join us again and engage with a range of new technological developments, hardware, concepts and challenges.

  • Wednesday 20 to Friday 22 January 2016
  • More than 50 places for school girls from anywhere in New Zealand
  • At St Cuthbert’s College Campus, Auckland
  • Attendees must be between Years 9 and 13 in 2016
  • Full residential attendance only
  • Cost $550 per attendee

“Being a residential camp means that all girls will spend three days and two nights together on the St Cuthbert’s College campus, evenings offering the chance to talk with other students about the day’s learning and share technology passions.

“On Thursday evening attendees will spend time with and hear from a number of trail-blazing women in the IT industry, who will share their experiences and pathways to success.
