Our mission is to help tamariki learn from the past to navigate the future. Innovation is in our DNA, and with our engaging videos and fun activities, we prove that science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) is not something to be afraid of. It's part of a much bigger world view - mātauranga.

Land of Voyagers

Join us on a voyage of discovery about the technology and innovation that brought people to Aotearoa. Polynesian navigators on mighty waka crossed the Pacific Ocean, guided only by their kinship to the natural world. Armed with their ancestral knowledge and a larger vision of science - mātauranga - they created our land of voyagers.

These extraordinary engineers, scientists, and mathematicians created the paving stones upon which we stand today.
