Programming Camp for Girls 2012 - 24 Jan 2012 9:00 - 5:00

Victoria University thanks Google for their continued support of high school education in New Zealand and Australia.


The camp will be held in Cotton 246 (Networking Lab) and Cotton 350 (Common Room), in the Cotton Building on Victoria University's Kelburn Campus. Here are links to a Kelburn Campus map and Wellington City map. Please note that on the Wellington Downtown Map, Victoria University is not marked but is in the large open area bordered by The Terrace at the bottom, and Salamanca Road on the right.


Attendees will be staying at Te Puni Village, one of Victoria University's newest student accommodation centers, and only a few minutes walk from where the camp activities will be run.
