Step into Tech: Techathon

Techathon is a place for young people to explore the many possibilities of technology in a way that is both creative and fun. Participants aged 8-18 take part in team challenges, learning through success and failure to discover their full creative potential. It's a fun-filled opportunity to learn new skills, meet with like-minded people and even form future employment connections.

Aims

To equip young people with the skills they need to know for understanding technological advancements and also to teach them how to stay safe online.
