The Science Learning Hub has a small selection of resources that have been translated into te reo Māori. There are also a number of resources that are part te reo Māori and part English.

If you’re looking for resources with Māori content – such as mātauranga Māori or kaitiakitanga – go to Resources with Māori content.

Museum conservation and science

In the 1980s, a pare (lintel) in Auckland War Memorial Museum’s carving collection fell and shattered. In Pare 5168, we follow its painstaking rebuild in a project that brought together conservationists from Auckland Museum and carvers Bernard Makoare and Lyonel Grant.

Textile conservator Rangi Te Kanawa oversees the largest museum collection of Māori textiles at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Preserving harakeke taonga details the work to prevent the deterioration of harakeke kākahu in order to preserve these taonga tuku iho and their valuable intellectual property for future generations.
