Kia ora,

We’re delighted to announce the return of ShadowTech Day and we are now accepting registrations for both host organisations and schools

Our ShadowTech Day programme offers girls in years 9-11 an opportunity to discover the world of tech, spark their curiosity and explore career pathways. We’re showcasing real roles, because we know there’s a tech job to suit everyone. 

We’re inspiring girls to join Aotearoa’s fastest growing and highest paid sector. Check out the highlights from ShadowTech Day 2023. Learn more.

Please help us promote ShadowTech Day directly to schools in your area. If you or your team know children attending secondary school, please forward this email to their digital tech teacher or careers advisor.

We also have flyers and posters ready for schools to print or share. View here.
