OMGTech! Rangers Holiday Programme

We are running a super fun hands on project based holiday program for children aged between 8 - 13!

It will take place over 2 weeks from 8am to 5pm:
Week 1: Monday 15th  - Friday 19th of January 2018
Week 2: Monday 22nd - Friday 26th of January 2018

Each day will involve spending the morning learning a new science and technology skill then in the afternoon children will work on their personal project supported by our industry mentors.

While the programme is designed to be attended for a whole week, we will be providing options for kids who are only attending one day and will provide smaller projects to work on.

All tickets are 1+1 Tickets which means by purchasing your ticket you are also giving the chance for a child from a high deprivation area to attend. The ticket price also includes transport to and from the venue and morning and afternoon snacks.

If you would like a sponsored place to the holiday programme or have any questions please email team@omgtech.co.nz
