Microsoft Student Accelerator for High School Students in New Zealand!
Students Teachers
Looking Forward
We have wrapped up 2016! You can still access the resources below.
We closely work with school students and teachers across New Zealand to help students realise the potential of working in the ICT Industry.

We do this by holding various workshops, sessions, representing at events, running competitions at multiple events!

We also do this by building multiple short training courses that focus on quick learning and tangible outcomes. You can view our latest Game Development course below or on Channel 9.

If you are a teacher, you can host and run this course at your school. More information here!
