Welcome to Tūmatarau Pango - Black Magic!

At Tūmatarau Pango, we believe in the transformative power of robotics and technology for young minds. Our program, specifically designed for female learners in year 3 to 13, is a beacon of opportunity in the heart of a predominantly Māori, low socio-economic area. We are dedicated to breaking down barriers and empowering the next generation of female innovators in the fields of FIRST Lego League (FLL), FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), and FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) robotics.

In a world where technology is advancing at an unprecedented pace, it is essential that all young minds have equal access to the skills and knowledge required to thrive in the 21st century. Tūmatarau Pango was born out of this necessity, with a mission to bridge the gender and socioeconomic gap in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education.

Our program offers a nurturing and inclusive environment where girls can explore their passion for robotics, coding, and engineering. We believe that diversity is our strength, and we are committed to ensuring that every participant has the opportunity to succeed, regardless of their background or circumstances.

Here at Tūmatarau Pango, we don't just teach robotics; we foster creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Our participants learn to collaborate, communicate, and compete on a global stage, all while building a strong foundation in STEM disciplines.


Join us on this exciting journey as we unlock the potential of young female learners and guide them towards a future filled with limitless possibilities. Explore our website to learn more about our program, meet our dedicated team, and discover the incredible achievements of our participants. Together, we are shaping a brighter, more inclusive future through the magic of robotics.

Welcome to Tūmatarau Pango - Black Magic, where we believe that every girl has the power to change the world!
