On Friday 17th of June a group of rangatahi Maaori from around the Waikato met at Waikato University to participate in a waananga for the Puuhoro STEMM academy. Puuhoro is kaupapa Maaori approach to STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Matauranga Maaori) that seeks to improve equitable access to Puurau education and pathway Maaori into high value careers. Highlights of the day include virtual reality marae design, dam failure testing with engineers and working with passionate tauira and kaiako from around the Waikato. We are looking forward to the Term 3 waananga. Nau mai haere mai.
