Work is progressing along nicely, and the site is starting to take shape.
On Saturday 12 October, the first event in the nearly revitalised Durham Street will take place, STEMFest. STEMFest is a world class festival, held in Tauranga, designed to engage and inspire a new generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
