When we want to succeed we look to those who have succeeded before us. We ask them to teach us, to make us better and to inspire us. We want to realise our dreams and ambitions no matter how big or incredible.
The TestPod is a science centre dedicated to linking New Zealanders to those successes in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM).
The TestPod will re-introduce STEAM in a playground of vibrant and edgy hands-on exhibits, encouraging New Zealanders to engage with STEAM and see it as part of their everyday lives. A centre that brings together teachers, students, the public, innovators and entrepreneurs of STEAM. One location to share knowledge.
