STEM Alliance Aotearoa is hosted by Te Hononga Akoranga COMET, a charitable trust and Auckland Council CCO aiming to make education more equitable and accessible for all. We work with partners across industry and the education sector to create more equitable STEM pathways, supporting science participation in the community and building STEM literacy and capability. We ensure that the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi are a key focus within the work that we do.
STEM Alliance Aotearoa is led by a steering group consisting of representatives from across the STEM sectors including business, research and education.
