The Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand (IPENZ) asked NZCER to evaluate its FutureinTech programme. Under the programme, young professional technologists, engineers and scientists (known as Ambassadors) visit schools and carry out a variety of activities, including careers talks and classroom support with lessons and projects. IPENZ employs eight regional facilitators who co-ordinate the Futureintech programme in their regions. The aim of the evaluation was to look at the impact of the programme and identify what was working and where it could be improved.
Key findings are reported in this Summary of the evaluation: The impact of Futureintech
