About us

The Science Learning Hub is a national project designed to support the effective teaching of science in New Zealand schools. It is funded by the New Zealand government through the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE)external link.

The Science Learning Hub provides resources for teachers for school years 5-10.

Our teaching resources explore the latest research in science and technology in New Zealand and are closely linked to the science curriculum.

The aims of the Hub are:

  •  to provide a link between science research organisations and science teachers
  •  to promote student interest and engagement in science
  •  to provide contemporary, contextualised resources for teachers
  •  to demonstrate the relevance of science research to our everyday lives.

The Science Learning Hub is developed by educators and teachers in collaboration with New Zealand scientists. The project is funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), and managed by the University of Waikatoexternal link.
