ShadowTech Day 2024 – New dates announced!

We’re delighted to announce the return of ShadowTech Day in August. Our 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. Matched with local tech companies, students will gain hands-on experiences to imagine their future career.

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