Join Greta Dromgool from the Science Learning Hub as she explores what mātauranga Māori is and ways to bring it alive as part of your science curriculum.
Greta will unpack with you what it might look like to incorporate mātauranga Māori into a New Zealand classroom. Links will be made to some key areas of knowledge, including astronomy and navigation, and the kōrero will be supported by articles, activities and teaching ideas.
This session will be valuable for both primary and secondary school teachers.
