New Zealand schools have limited funds and a lot of freedom on how to use those funds. For many years science investment at school level has not been a priority. The House of Science model ensures schools have access to a large range of quality, well maintained resources. We are encouraging the government to look for ways this can be directly funded to ensure all schools can access this great service and no student misses out. The investment is minimal and the rewards far reaching and long lasting. It’s a no-brainer as far as we’re concerned… In the meantime, we will continue to deliver kits to regions where the community are supporting us financially and through volunteer labour.
