Engaging Māori in Science webinar

November 10, 2020

PPTA in conjunction with Community Research is holding a webinar on Engaging Māori in Science.  

The webinar will explore everyday ways that science teachers in our schools make science relevant and engaging for Māori and Pasifika students – how they connect their science lessons to Māori and Pasifika cultural practices and traditional knowledge bases.

Open to all members, it will be held via Zoom on Tuesday November 10 from 7pm-8pm. Register here.
