Existing partnerships - House of Science - Annual Report 2018

8 April, 2019

Each of the eight House of Science regions has one MacDiarmid Institute-sponsored Nano-Chem kit, plus the Hutt Valley and Rotorua regions have each purchased a second kit, so there are currently 10 kits in circulation.

238 classrooms around the country used a Nano-Chem kit for a week in 2018. Over 9500 primary school students (including 2800 (30%) Maori, and 760 (8%) Pasifika students) have used the kit this year. Feedback continues to be extremely positive.

We love the partnership with the MacDiarmid Institute – our first national sponsor. The activities in the MacDiarmid Nano-Chem resource kit are hands-on and fun.
