House of Science
The House of Science community outreach facility, based in Tauranga's city centre, was established with funding support from Priority One and the University of Waikato. It provides a unique opportunity for students and teachers to access new science resources and gain linkages to scientists in the wider community. After school programmes and teacher professional development sessions are delivered, and innovative science teaching kits created for use in the classroom.
