Engineering New Zealand
Inspiring future generations to be excited about STEM is vital for New Zealand. Engineers make up just over 1% of New Zealand’s population and in 2014, 5% of New Zealand graduates at bachelor’s level or higher had studied engineering – compare that to the OECD average of 12% and we're lagging well behind.
Engineering New Zealand created the Wonder Project in 2018 to take over from their previous school programme, Futureintech. Their in-house team run the Wonder Project with support and funding from external partners. Their ultimate goal is to have the Wonder Project in every school in New Zealand, providing all students with the opportunity to experience STEM in a fun and engaging way.
