We’re inspiring young minds and creating the energy innovators of tomorrow.


Genesis School-gen is all about inspiring the next generation of energy innovators by engaging students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths). Since 2006 School-gen has provided free educational resources to schools across New Zealand to get young New Zealanders interested in science, while learning cool stuff about energy – how it’s made, how it works and how it can be managed.

In 2018 we reimagined, revitalised and relaunched School-gen to connect more young New Zealanders with STEM and sustainability learning opportunities. The  School-gen website provides a range of resources, maker projects, videos, and games – available for free for teachers, parents and kids to enjoy and learn from. We also continue to work with almost 100 solar schools, providing solar data via our website which all schools can look at and learn from.

School-gen encourages the energy innovators of the future to get hands on with experiments that educate, enlighten and ultimately help students to build the skills and knowledge they'll need for the jobs of the future – whatever they may be. We encourage students, parents and teachers to check out our website and follow our Facebook page to take advantage of everything School-gen has to offer.

In February 2019 Genesis established an independent charitable Trust to complement the School-gen programme by providing equipment to New Zealand schools and inspiring students’ interest in STEM and renewable energy. To find out more about the Genesis School-gen Trust, click here.

The work School-gen is doing was recognised this year when it was awarded Community Initiative of the Year at the 2019 Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards.
