New Zealand needs more women in our maritime industry as Engineers, Technicians, Operators and more. We're giving female students from around NZ a chance to spend a week onboard with us. Join us to find out if a life on the water is the life for you.

We're taking Registrations of Interest from young women in Year 12 and 13 who are studying Maths and Science (to a minimum of NCEA Level 2). The camp aims to introduce students to Navy life, as well as break down stereotypes and barriers that may prevent women from enlisting.

Students experience the thrill of seaboat drills aboard Rigid Hulled Inflatable Boats.

About Schools to Seas

Women make up less than 30 per cent of New Zealand’s Stem workforce. The aim of Schools to Seas is to attract young women to sustain and grow participation, both in the Navy and the wider marine industry.
