Every year during TECH WEEK, TŌNUI Collab gets creative with workshop offerings, creating new opportunities for the Tairāwhiti community to explore the diversity of tech. 

TECH WEEK is a nationwide series of events, showcasing and celebrating New Zealand innovation.  The intention behind Techweek is simple. New Zealand’s technology and innovation sectors are growing rapidly and Techweek fosters that growth by providing the national ecosystem with a week-long opportunity for connection and collaboration.

This year we are hosting two events...

Tuesday 25 May 6pm - 8pm Robot Races
Tōnui Collab's robotics workshops are always a sell-out event for the tamariki, this one's for the adults.
Book a table for 2 ($80) or a table of 4 ($140) - you'll design, construct, test and race robotic cars AND you'll be helping sponsor our upcoming robotics tournament for local rangatahi. Limited tables available. Refreshments provided. 

Saturday 29 May 1pm - 3pm Robotics Showcase
This event is for EVERYONE! Join us for an afternoon of robotics exploration. Our Robotics Club will be showcasing their VEX robotics and demonstrating the competitive field of robotics, we'll also have a range of different educational robotics tools for you to experiment with. Beyond science and engineering principles, robotics encourages creativity, teamwork, leadership, and problem solving among groups. No charge. No registration required.
