STEM in the Community

This year we are excited to be launching a new community based series of events designed to bring STEM to tamariki in schools and kura in the Bay of Plenty.

During the week of the 30th August to 5th September we will be organising morning and afternoon sessions at different locations across the region, to involve tauira in STEM activities. Sessions are suitable for tamariki aged between 8 and 12.
