Hutt Science is an exciting initiative by Hutt City Council to help engage and enthuse young people about science and technology. We work by resourcing and supporting local educators and students and promoting linkages between schools, tertiary institutions and science and technology employers in Lower Hutt.
To support student engagement and achievement in science and technology, with the goal of inspiring more young people from Hutt Valley schools to go on to further education and employment in this exciting field.
To enrich science education in Lower Hutt by creating the conditions for innovative and productive networking across the education, science and technology communities.
Hutt Science is staffed by a specialist educator and a team of volunteers. Its range of activities will continue to develop in response to demands from students, schools and employers. Currently it offers:
- Hands-on science resources kits for use by primary and intermediate schools
- Teacher professional development
- Children's programmes
- One-off special events
