Haere mai to all Āwhina students for 2013!
Te Rōpū Āwhina whānau in the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Architecture and Design at Victoria University of
Wellington was established in 1999. The kaupapa of Āwhina is to produce Māori and Pacific scientists, technologists, engineers, architects and designers to contribute to Māori and Pacific community development and leadership.

‘Turning up the Success Gene’
Our new ‘Step into STEAD’ DVD debunks the myths and legends that the STEAD disciplines (Science, Mathematics, Statistics,
Technology, Engineering, Architecture and Design) are not for Māori and Pacific and other low socio-economic groups. This DVD
and the two Cybrospace booklets send a clear “If we can do it, so can you!” message aimed at increasing the uptake and
success of these groups in STEAD.
Resources are free and available from firstname.lastname@example.org
Hot off the press!

engineering) for Māori, Pacific, and other under-represented minority groups. Get your copy from:
