An experiment which resulted in better partnerships between schools and science providers, and more ‘wow’ science experiences in classrooms.

The Todd Foundation recently completed its Curious Classrooms project with a cohort of primary/intermediate schools in South Auckland. The project ran for 5 years and aimed to help deliver more ‘wow’ science for children whilst supporting schools to build their staff and resource capacity. It was a partnership with The National Science Technology Roadshow Trust

The report ‘Curious Classrooms 2014-2015 – A brief summary report’ documents the project’s outcomes and the lessons learned, offering an analysis of what worked, and making recommendations for future replication.

The evaluation shows that Curious Classrooms has been a win-win for both schools and science providers. The schools have new learning pathways they can continue, either by themselves or with science providers. Science providers have developed new programmes, and can see different ways of working with schools.
