The Auckland STEM Alliance brings together businesses, educators and government to support the development of an Auckland society with a strong focus on science and technology.

Members work together to support activities that engage the Auckland community at all levels, creating a hub of scientific innovation and a wider community that embraces science in everyday life.

We aim to increase participation in STEM learning at primary, secondary and tertiary education levels in Auckland, supporting the development of a workforce trained to meet future business needs.

We anticipate this will have a knock-on effect of increasing the level of scientific understanding across the community and allow Aucklanders to engage in informed discussion on science-related issues.

Since early 2015, the Auckland STEM Alliance has been focusing on its flagship project SouthSci - the Participatory Science Platform for south Auckland, co-hosted with COMET Auckland.
