Some of our students will be taking part in the Wonder Project Power Challenge next term. It’s an amazing programme designed to get young Kiwis excited about STEM – science, technology, engineering and maths. The programme pairs STEM professionals with teachers to deliver the challenge and we need more volunteers to help our kids design and build a wind turbine. Using power generated from the turbine and a solar panel they are challenged to light up their mini town, whilst along the way learning about energy transfer and energy transformation!
Keen to help and have a L6 (or more) qualification in science or engineering? It only requires 1 hour a week for 3-4 weeks during Term 3. The Wonder Project team provides everything we need, so you don’t have to be an energy expert to guide our students on the Power Challenge. We are looking for passionate and committed professionals working in STEM fields who want to make a real difference – and inspire wonder in the minds of young people in their community.
