Tūhura Tech

Empowering the next generation through Technology Education

At Tūhura Tech, our mission is to provide free technology education to children in the Wellington region. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to learn about and engage with technology, regardless of their background or financial situation.

Our Mahi

We work across various areas with a focus on providing free/affordable sessions and support to kids aged 18 and under. Below is an overview of some of the work we do to accomplish this goal.

After School Sessions

We run free after-school sessions at a variety of schools and community centres across school years 5-13 providing spaces where students can explore technology with the support of our staff and volunteers.

Public Resources

All the resources and guides we create are available for free and publicly under CC BY-SA 4.0, MIT or AGPLv3+ Licenses including resources for NCEA.


In collaboration with industry or our other partners, we run one off workshops on a variety of topics from VEX Robotics to 3D Printing.

In School Sessions

We work closely with several schools to support their classes or run outreach sessions during school time to provide greater opportunities to students.


Working across a range of subjects, we coach and support teams and students who compete in a variety of competitions, from cybersecurity to mechanical/electrical engineering.

Professional Development

Taking our experience at schools and industry, we support digital technology teachers with Professional Development.
