Get involved in a teacher-fed online forum facilitated by Science in a Van in partnership with their friends from Pokapū Akoranga Pūtaiao (

The aim is to make planning for your science topic easier and more fun!

We never record these gatherings but you can quickly get an email with all the links and resources from past Hive Mind sessions here

During our time together, you’ll:

* Hear how other teachers plan to get science into their classrooms.

* Have an opportunity to share your own plans.

* Be able to bounce ideas, resources and activities around with other teachers.

* See some hands-on demonstrations/experiments from Science in a Van that you’ll be able to recreate in your classroom.

* Be equipped with basic science concepts from the Science Learning Hub team.

* Get access to a digital collection. Science Learning Hub will combine the ‘Hive Mind’ ideas with their amazing resources to create an online collection that you can copy and make your own!

All this will ensure that your next science topic is fun, engaging, well planned and accessible (to you AND your students).

Tell your teacher mates and we’ll see you at the next Hive Mind!
