Teacher designed learning activities

Free education resources to get kaiako, tamariki and whānau enthused about STEM.

Inspiring the next generation of Kiwi innovators

Genesis School-gen is a free education programme to get young New Zealanders excited about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

STEM education will play a vital role in shaping the future for our rangatahi (next generation), where almost all jobs in their future will require some level of STEM capabilities.

Inspiring passion starts at primary school. School-gen resources empower kaiako (teachers) to deliver STEM education so ākonga (students) can develop a lifelong love of learning.
