Te Pōkai Ao: Silicon Valley Haerenga

Are you a tech geek?

This year a group of Ngāi Tahu rangatahi (youth) will go to Silicon Valley, San Francisco, USA to engage with science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM).

This incredible opportunity is open to all Ngāi Tahu rangatahi in years 9 and 10. We are looking for innovative, creative thinkers and leaders and, most importantly, rangatahi with open minds who are willing to learn from new experiences.

Rangatahi will take part in design workshops and meet leaders from companies like Google and Facebook.

We want our rangatahi to rekindle the creative spirit of Māui by carving out new ways to express our culture and create opportunities for our whānau to prosper in the digital world.

More information for the next intake coming soon
