In order to create really cool technologies, websites and apps for your phone, technology professionals have to keep up to date with all the latest technology words, apps and programs.
You might think technology words are difficult to understand, but it only sounds difficult when you’re not using the words every day.

The #TechTeamTour wants to help you discover cool technology career options. Have you ever considered working in technology when you finish school? There is a myth that technology careers are only for boys, this isn’t true, technology is for girls and boys and we need lots of different people to shape the future.
Technology has the ability to change the world, making it better for everyone. Technology is and belongs everywhere; at music festivals, in video games, on college campuses, in apps, on film sets on TV and at sporting events.
