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


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 new 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 over 90 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.
