With over 25 students coming from all over New Zealand, and a grueling 12 hours spent in the Auckland airport waiting for flights, the summer camp has come to a close.
We had students from every walk of life, some competing at the IOI level, for a spot on the team, and others learning C++ as their first or second language
We really want to thank AUT and Grafton Hall, for without them, our camp would not be possible. We also have to thank our generous lecturers and tutors, who give up their time to help educate!
See you all next year!
We are well in the midst of preparations for NZOI Summer Training Camp, and looking out for students to attend!
Secondary school students from all over New Zealand will soon be converging on Auckland, for the annual training and team selection camp. Students live at the prestigious Grafton Hall, and study at the magnificent AUT, and we thank our very generous hosts for the facilities they provide!
Our magnificent team have returned from the IOI with two bronze medals, after two tense contest days!
Both Tony and Logan have scored bronze medals, with Tony being very close to a silver. Byung-Hoon and Alan Ansell were both very close to medal potential, and we look forward to seeing what they will be doing in the future!
The team of four is gathering in Auckland on July 2 for a pre-departure training camp. They will be working at a lab sponsored by AUT, and in addition to last minute practices, they will be meeting with many of our sponsors.
Internet NZ, Solnet, VendHQ and Orion Health have all helped make this year's trip to the IOI in Brisbane possible.
Three of the 4 team members are old hands with Tony Sun and Logan Glasson attending their 4th Olympiads and Alan Ansell attending his 2nd. New comer Byung Hoon Cho is not completely a novice to the scientific Olympiads with an older brother making the Maths team this year.
The team are looking forward to the Brisbane competition with hope that all their hard work will reap rewards.
The IOI2014 will be hosted by and held in Taipei, Taiwan!
