STEMFest at Groundswell 2019 Play and Explore Popup

We are so thrilled to be involved in this year’s Groundswell Festival of Innovation programme of activities spanning two weeks from 26th August to 9th September 2019.

Our FREE popup Play & Explore session was held on Tuesday 3rd September from 10am to 1pm at Basestation in Durham St.

We invited those who worked in the CBD to pop in during their lunch break, as well as our home-schooled community, and local pre-schools to come along to say hello to the team and take part in some creative bridge building, water fun with our friends House of Science Tauranga, augmented reality sandbox, retro gaming (which brought a smile to the adults in the room), and DNA bracelet making.

The three hours soon whizzed by, but not before we counted nearly 40 visitors to our little session. The highlight for the team has got to be the class of three and four year olds who were resplendent in their cute high-vis jackets and so were great at mountain building in our sandbox!

Thank you to the team at Groundswell who came and supported us and spoke to our visitors. We’re now officially super excited for the main STEMFest day on Saturday 12th October 2019!
