As Kaituitui Wānanga I’d like to welcome you to our website. Here you can find out what Science Wānanga is all about, keep in touch with latest news and events, check out our film and photo archive, look for scholarships and opportunities or join us to stay connected and share your ideas.
Science Wānanga are three day, hands-on experiences for Māori secondary students in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Staying on marae with university students, scientists and kaumatua, students get to hang out and do real science in their local communities. The strength of the programme are the supportive partnerships between iwi, schools and the University of Otago, Division of Sciences and Division of Health Sciences.
Wānanga encourage us all to explore the connections and actions between science, matauranga Māori and our lives, especially the links between human health & environmental health. If you’re a Māori student who’s passionate about the world around you, we’ll help you get to where you want to be.
Teachers & principals, take a look through our science teaching resources.
