Launching the Mobile Innovation Hub

Launching the Mobile Innovation Hub

In June 2017 we launched our Mobile Innovation Hub, our unique approach to connect rangatahi living in remote rural communities in the Far North with technology, education and health initiatives.

Our Mobile Innovation Hub travels regularly to five remote communities - Te Hapua, Te Kao, Awanui, Ahipara and Mangamuka delivering programmes of learning to meet key outcomes around technology, literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing.  

The Mobile Innovation Hub is kitted out with mobile wifi, devices and desk space and is out on the road Monday to Friday during term time providing after school workshops in film making, drone flying and coding.

The programme is currently being co-designed with rangatahi in the various communities, adapting to suit the needs and interests of the communities in each area.  

Since launching, our Mobile Innovation Hub has engaged with over 300 whānau, tamariki and rangatahi through events, wānanga and camps.   We currently have over 130 tamariki and rangatahi engaging in the Moko Innovation Hub weekly workshops and programmes.
