Hooked on our Information - NZ Native Fish

(Published on 14th March 2018)

Bi-lingual resources created by the NZ Landcare Trust have been utilised by the Science Learning Hub to teach primary and secondary school-aged children.

Our “Hooked on Native Fish” series , designed and printed in both English and te reo Māori, and have been utilised and further developed by The Science Hub and will be used as learning resources for students from year 2-10. This series focused on native freshwater fish and stream restoration, learning about our enigmatic fish and how we can help to restore their habitats to ensure they thrive.

The Science Learning Hub is developed by educators and teachers in collaboration with New Zealand scientists to provide resources for teachers. It is funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, and managed by the University of Waikato.

The Science Learning Hub uses a range of media to tell the stories of New Zealand research and development. Teacher resources demonstrate how these stories can be used as contexts for creating relevant and engaging classroom programmes, with content developed by teachers, teacher educators and multimedia experts working closely with some of New Zealand’s scientists, technologists and engineers. Our series has been expanded on and added to their repertoire – check out the Science Learning Hub site here.

The Science Learning Hub is an integral component of the New Zealand Government’s Science in Society Plan – A Nation of Curious Minds, He Whenua Hihiri I te Mahara.
