Abstract or Summary

The Ministry of Education’s Secondary Tertiary Alignment Resource (STAR) programme gives Year 10 to 13 students the chance to attend tertiary courses. Students get a taste of a subject or job area that interests them while learning new skills that can help them move into study or work. In providing a “fun” experience the likelihood of these students choosing to study computing is enhanced. This case shares the success at Wintec to stimulate interest.
