Ambassadors

Do you enjoy playing with the latest tech and challenging yourself to solve problems?  Want behind the scenes access to the Geelong Tech School?

 

 

About

Each year the Geelong Tech School invites students from local secondary schools to apply for the Ambassador Program. Throughout the year, these Ambassadors will take part in fortnightly afterschool workshops, as well as participating in at least one event per term.

Geelong Tech School Ambassadors will have access to trial new projects and engage with the latest technologies.

Ambassador projects will involve critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and communication, to address real-world challenges. Design thinking, student agency, and leadership development are integral elements throughout the Ambassador program.

To be eligible students must gain parental consent, and make a commitment to attend all workshops and events. Transportation to and from the Tech School needs to be independently organised.
