It’s TECH WEEK_2021

TECH WEEK_2021 is up and running (April 17th – 23rd) and in a year like no other for everyone, organisers are acutely aware of the challenges school’s have faced in covering the curriculum so Tech Week is a bit more low-key this time around.

TECH WEEK is coordinated by the Irish Computer Society and is nationwide series of events, showcasing and celebrating Ireland’s application on technology. It provides a platform for students to learn, share ideas and create connections to enhance our future world. The intention behind it is as simple as fostering the growth of technology and providing primary and secondary students with opportunities for experiential engagement that will help develop their interest in technology, advance creativity and innovation while also letting them have a lot of fun in the process! This year it couldn’t be simpler to get involved and show your continued support for Tech Week, just tag anything techie you do this week @TechWeekIRL or and follow these three steps…
