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!”
