Tech Toolbox

Tech Toolbox is our answer to parents, grandparents and other adults determined not to get left behind in an increasingly tech-enabled world. The 10-week hands-on programme immerses students in digital and creative technologies that are soon to shape our world. Each week a different technology will be covered, leaving you with broad, practical knowledge of what the future holds.

Hear our Education Director Rich Rowley talk to Radio New Zealand about the course: ‘Keeping up with tech-savvy kids.’
