Our world is surrounded by technology. Information, commerce, communication and entertainment all rely on computers, but only a tiny fraction of our primary and high school students learn the basics of how computers work, or how to create software, apps or websites.
The High Tech Youth Network and Microsoft are eager to change that in New Zealand, so we are joining forces to participate in the global Week of Code from 24-28th March. During this week, we will be hosting a #WeSpeakCode event at High Tech Youth Network studios across the network on Friday 27 March. We will bring together students, parents and teachers from across the nation to give coding a try and to encourage all New Zealanders to do so too.
We want to help young people in our community participate and discover the fun of coding, and more importantly, how it can be a catalyst to create and achieve great things.
