What’s the difference between Genesis School-gen programme and the Genesis School-gen Trust?

The Genesis School-gen programme is a community initiative that Genesis has supported for over a decade, helping over 90 schools throughout New Zealand by providing free educational resources focused on getting young people engaged in learning about science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), and renewable energy.

The Genesis School-gen Trust supports this initiative, by providing free science, technology, engineering, maths (STEM) and solar equipment to New Zealand schools. Through the School-gen programme, Genesis became aware that having the right equipment and resources to engage kids in STEM subjects is vital. As an energy company focused on innovation, Genesis saw another opportunity to support schools and further develop the next generation of energy innovators. So, the idea of setting up the Trust was born.
