STEM Wana Trust is a registered charity. Our core mission is to engage and inspire a new generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians through creative community initiatives and events such as New Zealand’s first-ever STEM Festival in 2019. Driven by the community, for the community. Our strength is in forging partnerships and collaborating with like-minded organisations to ensure that Aotearoa leads the way in producing creative thinkers and problem solvers.
At Stand Tall we believe in a bright, sustainable, connected and prosperous future for Aotearoa and our youth’s ability to build the future they want to see.
This future needs new skills and a new mindset to be fostered and developed today. We partner and create the conditions required by youth to unlock their talent and nurture their entrepreneurial spirit.
Together we increase visibility of and access to pathways and opportunities for young people to be the future they want to see.
