FUTUREINTECH

Several members of NZIFST are Futureintech Ambassadors, specifically trained to support secondary teachers and inspire students. They’re able to relate to the students, explain and demonstrate their careers, and show how subjects like maths, technology and science are used in real jobs. They can also help students with Food Technology projects.

See below for some examples of how NZIFST members work with secondary schools.
