Tauranga STEM Festival (STEMFest) 2021 has been cancelled due to COVID-19

It is with great disappointment that the Board of STEM Wana Trust are reluctantly announcing the cancellation of Tauranga STEM Festival (STEMFest) on the 5th December 2021.

After months and months of work by the STEMFest project team and the initial postponement from our original October date, we have tried to hold off for as long as possible to make this difficult call. Our commitment has always been to keep going until forces beyond our control make it impossible for us to do so. Unfortunately that time has come.

Thank you to some of our amazing sponsors who continue to support our kaupapa.

Headline Sponsor Trustpower

“There are so many reasons we love to get involved with STEMFest. Top of the list is supporting a super cool free learning event for kids (and big kids) to get involved in and learn about the great STEM stuff happening locally.

It’s also such a great chance for us to get together as a team and dream up fun ways to share what we do! At Trustpower we have a lot of jobs that are based in STEM, from hydrologists and dam safety engineers, to software engineers and everything in between. If we can help inspire some of our new generation to explore STEM subjects, that’s a really great outcome all round!”
