Theta Te Ao Māori Technology Scholarship: Seeking Aotearoa's fresh minds for the next generation of tech professionals
Each year we contribute to the community in many ways.
As of May 2022, we have collectively raised $150,000 for Cure Kids.
Our primary fundraising efforts go towards Cure Kids through participation in the Cure Kids Great Adventure Race. We have competed every year the race has run since 2012. After it stopped running in 2018, we continued to fundraise and enter new adventure races. Money raised from these events goes directly to scientific research into the life-threatening childhood diseases and conditions affecting New Zealand children and their families. Highlights of our participation:
Our innovation lab is working with a group of MiniDevs from Newlands Intermediate School to explore the frontiers of virtual and augmented reality and design learning opportunities based on real-world challenges.
We regularly support a number of other charities and appeals, including Loud Shirt Day (supporting the treatment of child hearing disorders), Daffodil Day for the Cancer Society, the Red Cross and the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind.
In 2022, we raised $10,000 for the Ukrainian Red Cross.
Theta’s Azure experience, consultants who know the council and its environment well, and strong communications were all part of this project’s success.
