April 2021 School Holiday Programme 

South Auckland

Papakura Library & Manurewa Library

This school holiday we will be exploring our futures and digging into our past, in order to inspire our future innovators to have a growth mindset.

The first week of our holiday programme aims to ignite our future scientists and engineer’s passion and creativity through STEAM enquiries, ranging from what we would need to settle on Mars to developing sustainable cities here on Earth. The second week we will inform these future enquiries through a look to our past, seeking to understand where we come from, to guide our future aspirations.
