Most school holidays we invite 7+ year olds to create, construct, test and prototype. Our workshops encourage children to explore the diversity of STEMM - science, technology, engineering, mathematics and mātauranga Māori through the experimentation and creation of animation, engineering, game development, robotics, coding, virtual reality and more!
Our mission is to support rangatahi to build confidence through inquiry, investigation and experimentation. We help young people to learn how to take advantage of the capabilities of technology, becoming creators – not just consumers.
OCTOBER 2023 HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS
We partner with local groups and community spaces to bring school holiday STEMM workshops to Te Tairāwhiti. In September 2023 we will be spending the first week of the school holidays out at Muriwai Marae to create STEMM Wānanga with a VR focus for ngā uri o Muriwai.
In the second week of the holidays we are coming into town to create STEMM learning opportunities for the rest of our community.
