Board of directors, ambassador and the executive team

Chris Duggan

Our Founder

Chris trained as a Biochemist and taught secondary school science for 15 years. Throughout this time, Chris developed a growing sense of concern about the lack of science knowledge students had when arriving at high school. When she read an E.R.O. report in 2013 that stated over 70% of NZ's primary and intermediate schools lack an effective science programme, she decided something needed to be done. She left her middle management and teaching role mid 2013 and the rest - as they say - is history.

Dr Siouxsie Wiles

Our Ambassador

“The House of Science model is brilliant – the science kits are amazing and make science accessible for all primary schools. Science is a resource-hungry subject so by sharing these kits among a group of schools it allows access to quality resources covering the whole science curriculum. I feel very honoured to be given this role as Ambassador for the House of Science as I help the charity raise awareness of their amazing and important work."
