While families across NZ are adapting to learning from home, Genesis School-gen has partnered with Mind Lab kids to provide Kiwis with FREE access to hundreds of fun and easy experiments and challenges online.
The Genesis School-gen programme, which has been inspiring future Kiwi innovators since 2006 to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), will now explode out of the classroom and into homes across the country, via an online platform with partner Mind Lab Kids.
James Magill, Genesis Executive General Manager, Retail Markets, says he hopes the partnership will provide a little reprieve to families at home in their bubbles, while continuing to support kiwi kids’ interest in STEM.
“We’ve been helping energise young minds in STEM learning for more than 14 years through our School-gen programme and more recently through the School-gen Trust,” says Magill. “By giving Kiwi kids free access to a safe online space to imagine, create, and share – all easily at home - we hope this latest initiative will mark another successful chapter in the School-gen story.”
Mind Lab Kids has been developed by educators and includes hundreds of cool challenges to try online. Frances Valintine, Mind Lab Kids Founder says it’s a great way to keep those young minds occupied and learning at the same time.
“I’m incredibly excited to be partnering with Genesis to bring Mind Lab Kids to the homes of all Kiwi kids,” says Valintine. “Being able to help young students develop their creative and tech capability from their dining room table makes me immensely proud. Thanks to Genesis and their commitment to education, we can bring learning to homes across the country, combining education and fun together in one platform.”
