From 22 to 28 April, the Irish Computer Society will be running Tech Week, a week-long, nationwide festival on everything to do with technology, aimed at students, parents and the public.
From coding to gaming, the Internet of Things to drones, Tech Week is a wide-ranging initiative. Activities include nationwide competitions, local events, school tech projects, engagement and awareness raising activities. Now in its fifth year, Tech Week aims to educate everyone about the challenges and rewards of our fast-changing technological society.
We need your help to make this a truly national event by registering an event on our website which you will run in your local community during the festival.

Organising an event (paid or free of charge) is also an excellent opportunity for you to showcase your training centre to a new audience and potential customers.
Some suggestions for activities include:
Activities don’t need to be elaborate or costly. It can be as easy as hosting a discussion about the effects of technology on our everyday lives during the lunch break or running a ‘just-for-fun’ tech-quiz.
