  • The Science Learning Hub has a selection of resources that have been translated into te reo Māori and a number of resources that feature both te reo Māori and English.

    Our webinar Opportunities for te reo Māori shares ideas and resources for teachers wanting to increase the amount of te reo Māori in their classrooms.

    If you’re looking for resources with Māori content – such as mātauranga Māori or kaitiakitanga – go to Resources with Māori content.

    Museum conservation and science

    In the 1980s, a pare (lintel) in Auckland War Memorial Museum’s carving collection fell and shattered. In Pare 5168, we follow its painstaking rebuild in a project that brought together conservationists from Auckland Museum and carvers Bernard Makoare and Lyonel Grant.

    Textile conservator Rangi Te Kanawa oversees the largest museum collection of Māori textiles at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Preserving harakeke taonga details the work to prevent the deterioration of harakeke kākahu in order to preserve these taonga tuku iho and their valuable intellectual property for future generations. Black is back is an article featuring Rangi Te Kanawa, with supporting teacher resources, from the Ministry of Education’s Connected series.
