The inaugural Tech Week takes place from Sunday April 27th to Saturday May 3rd. It is a festival of technology that will give pupils, parents and the public hands on opportunities (both in and out of the school setting) to learn about 3rd-level and career options in computing and other technology fields. It aims to make technology more interesting and accessible to children and adults alike. It highlights how technology is hugely relevant to us all in our everyday lives, lead to interesting and exciting career options and develop creativity in our children.
