WHAT IS TECH WEEK?

Welcome to Ireland’s Tech Week , a nationwide festival of technology driven events aimed at students, parents and the public. Tech Week features classroom & community activities, competitions, and many more.

The revolution of tech is on the rise. It moves so fast – faster than our imagination can keep up with. We have experienced interesting, disruptive innovations as each day passes and it won’t slow down.

This festival offers experiential engagement to students which will allow them to develop their interest in technology, advance creativity and innovation while also let them have a lot of fun!

Join us and make an impact for the future at Tech Week !
