Education Events

Connecting students and schools with industry to excite and inspire the next generation of New Zealand’s geothermal workforce.

New Zealand’s geothermal industry is underpinned by sound science and technology, brought to life by diverse and skilled people who can communicate, connect and collaborate to help the industry and its local communities to grow and thrive. 


We need a wide range of skills and talent to join us on our sustainable energy journey, and believe that this starts by lighting the spark of interest in our youth, and opening their eyes and minds to career possibilities. This year’s events for schools and students are intended to do just that!
