The headline kaupapa/project will be to deliver an ambitious world-class STEM Festival, the first of its kind in Tauranga and Aotearoa on 12th October 2019, as part of the global Ada Lovelace Day celebrations.
STEMFest, thereafter, will be an annual event showcasing all that is happening in the world of STEM and making it accessible to all communities in Tauranga, the wider Bay of Plenty and across New Zealand.
Every year Tauranga will be the focus of the nation for anything relating to science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It truly will be the ‘Fieldays’ of STEM!
