Introduced in 2021 by Techpadi’s Program Manager, Maryam Muritadha, the Techpadi Tech Sensitisation Tour has been an integral part of the organisation’s activities since 2022. Carried out in Secondary Schools, the tour aims to engage students in interactive sessions and discussions that raise awareness about the importance of technology in this new digital age. The sensitisation tour aims to:

  • Raise awareness and educate secondary school students about the importance of technology in innovation and driving positive change.
  • Inspire interest and spark their curiosity in technology and STEM-related fields.
  • Promote digital literacy among students in public schools by giving them the right information and knowledge, that they otherwise cannot get in their schools, needed to navigate the digital landscape safely and responsibly.
