  • Learning STEM skills at Te Waka Unua School

Did you know that it’s estimated that over 80 per cent of the jobs people will do in the future either don’t exist yet, or will be done completely differently? That poses some big challenges for today’s learners and it’s why STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) learning is so important.

STEM learning helps develop critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills and with the STEM equipment gifted by the Trust, Te Waka Unua School is able to offer tamariki hands-on-experiences to bring this learning to life.
