This month, 78 high school students interested in web applications and robotics, attended the University of Sydney's National Computer Science School (NCSS)

  • The students are given the opportunity to meet staff from program sponsors including Google, Apple University Consortium and Altium.

  • NCSS was established in 1996 to give high school students the opportunity to spend 10 days on campus to receive tuition in programming for web applications and embedded systems for robotics

  • NCSS director Dr James Curran said the students put in an "amazing effort".

  • As part of the program, the students form groups and are required to either build a social networking site in just over three days, or program iRobots, in addition to producing video presentations.
