Custom dimensions 1000x1000 px

It was a shame that we only got one activity done on the Tuesday and then we went into lockdown. The kids were really looking forward to doing more of the experiments. Thank you so much for having the kits so well set up and resourced with everything that we need. They are fantastic kits!!

We equip thousands of teachers across Aotearoa to deliver engaging hands-on science lessons every week. Our kits cover the whole primary science curriculum and are a huge hit with students and teachers.

HOW IS IT FUNDED?

Our kits are developed with the help of science organisations like the MacDiarmid institute, MPI, AgResearch etc.

Local kit sponsorship pays for the purchase, maintenance, delivery and upkeep of each kit.
