About us - House of Science Hutt Valley
In 2015, Hutt Science was established by Hutt City Council to help engage young people and make them enthusiastic about science and technology and in doing so make a positive difference to educational outcomes and career opportunities. It forms part of the Hutt City Economic Development Plan 2015-2020 Strategy that has a clear goal of enriching science development within the Hutt Valley.
Hutt Science is a proud member of the House of Science nationwide education network. The programme focuses on resourcing and supporting local educators and students, and promoting links between schools and the science community in the Hutt Valley. It operates with a specialist educator and a team of volunteers.
Teachers, students and the wider community can access our diverse programmes and educational materials, which include:
- A comprehensive science resource library for primary and intermediate schools
- Teacher professional development
- Children's programmes
- Community outreach
- One-off special events
