If your students have been accessing and engaging with Techweek this week July 27-31), we'd love to hear more.

Yesterday Ko Maui Hangarau in Tauranga saw several talented Māori innovators (Nikora Ngaporo, Young Animators, Hiria Te Rangi Whare Hauora, Clayton Low, Arataki, Dan Walker, Microsoft, Teresa Pollard, Datacom, Kahu and Chey Milne Arataua) sharing their success in the business and tech industry. You can see the recording of yesterday's live feed via Facebook. Do you have any learners who identify as Māori that could be inspired by these super successful mentors? Then feel free to share this with them also.

It's also inspiring to hear stories emerging where schools are recognising the need to create equitable opportunities for Māori and Pacific girls to explore technology - considering a current under-representation in the IT workforce. For example, Aorere College has developed a public-private partnership with IBM, The Warehouse, Manukau Institute of Technology, and The Mind Lab to offer a year 11 course, P-TECH. The course is designed to provide young people with the academic, technical, and professional skills required for 21st-century jobs.

Pathways for young Māori and Pacific women in technology
