The Tuākana Science app has been launched. It is part of the Faculty of Science’s initiative to give Māori and Pacific students easier access all the information they need to participate in the Tuākana programme. The Research Programmers team in the Department of Computer Science created the app in a project proposed by David Welch, Ulrich Speidel and Michael Steedman (Faculty of Science Kaiārahi).
The current features of the app include mentor and tutor directory, tutorial and department information, news and events, easy access to social media links and directories. Other useful features will be added to the app in future updates.
