Showcasing Education Technology

The star of our show was the Micro:Bit, which drew the attention of both businesses and tech-lovers. The question was often asked "so what does it do?", to which the only answer was "what can't it do!". The Micro:Bit is a versatile piece of programmable technology that can be used for essentially anything, with it's primary purpose being an effective tool for education.

Everyone from teachers wanting to inspire their students to parents looking for a way to encourage their kids to tinker with technology were interested in hearing what the Micro:Bit could do for them. It's no secret that the world is turning towards technology to facilitate advanced problem solving. The Micro:Bit is a fun way for students - and adults - to learn how they can make a difference with technology.

We were able to network with some incredible, innovative businesses throughout the day, sharing ideas and predictions about the future of technology in New Zealand. It's exciting to see so many Kiwi's that are passionate about providing solutions to both domestic and global issues.
