Nō Tātou te Wāhi - Mōu te Āpōpō / Our place, your future

Your future in Computer Science and Software Engineering starts here! Teachers and students come along to see a showcase of our projects

What's it all about?

This two hour workshop gives year 7 and 8 students the opportunity to explore what it’s like to be a Computer Science student at University of Canterbury. We have a wero (challenge) for you to complete that involves: being creative, exploring the art of debugging and applying your problem solving skills.  

This meetup will be delivered in English, however the content will be really beneficial to kura Māori also. We invite all Māori Medium kaiako to attend as the skills and knowledge covered in these sessions are relevant to Māori Medium contexts.

Ko te reo Pākehā te reo kawe i ēnei hui ā-kaupapa heoi anō he nui tonu te whaihua mō ngā kura arareo Māori. E pōhiritia ana ngā kaiako Arareo Māori kia uru mai kia kitea e koutou te hāngai o ngā pūkenga me ngā mātauranga ka kapia i ngā awheawhe ki nga horopaki ako Arareo Māori.

You should be present for the whole duration of this event.

Engineering Core Buliding, Engineering Core Building Room 222/223, 65 Creyke Road, Ilam, Christchurch, New Zealand
