Tauranga STEM Festival

Science – Technology – Engineering – Mathematics

The STEM Wana team and our awesome partners have been planning amazing activities for you to enjoy during the summer holidays.
There will be several workshops covering electronics, robotics, science and coding but also a STEM Open Day with several activities for the whole family to enjoy!

Tauranga STEM Festival is a project developed by STEM Wana Trust.

In 2019, Tauranga STEM Festival was the first event of its kind to be held in New Zealand as part of the global celebration and the first ever Ada Lovelace Day Official Partner Event outside of the U.K. We are proud to run in conjunction with our sister event Peterborough STEM Festival in the U.K.

The concept for STEMFest was originally inspired by Ada Lovelace Day (ALD). Ada Lovelace was a mathematician who worked with Charles Babbage and was considered the first female computer programmer, before computers even existed, back in 1843.

ALD is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths. It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM.

In 2019 there were ALD events held in:
Towns/cities: 108
Countries: 19
Continents: 6
with a total of 162 events around the world.
