The TestPod will be New Zealand’s Science Centre. A scientific playground designed to inspire a lifelong curiosity in STEAM. An iconic building dedicated to growing a more informed and scientifically involved public.

A unique space striving to bring New Zealanders, New Zealand’s science community and its professionals together in one location, making access to STEAM easy.

A hub where STEAM is explored and celebrated through a diverse range of high sensory and engaging experiences, current and evolving exhibits and professional forums, re-introducing STEAM in a new and vibrant way. Catering to the interests and needs of schools and tertiary providers, we aim to link the education sector and our STEAM community together by providing the space to promote, discuss and explore STEAM fields to school and university students.

More about us

“Science and the knowledge and innovation that flow from scientific progress have a critical role in creating and defining our future”

A Nation of Curious Minds 2014 (MBIE)

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.
