Pūhoro

Pūhoro helps rangatahi see the connection between mātauranga Māori and STEM, improves their academic achievement, and provides pathways into high value careers.

Students receive weekly mentoring in their STEM subjects, attend wānanga at tertiary campuses each term and are offered internship and work experience opportunities to support their learning. Genesis has supported the launch of Pūhoro programmes in secondary schools close to our Tongariro and Waikaremoana Power Schemes.
