SHOWCASING SCIENCE FOR FUTURE SUSTAINABILITY AT TE PAPA

We’ve partnered with Te Papa Tongarewa to include future sustainability science in the national museum’s new Te Taiao | Nature exhibition, opening in May 2019.

As our Board Chair pointed out in his intro, materials science is the basis of all sustainable technologies, including new batteries, new solar photovoltaics and new types of low energy computing.

We’re looking forward to working with Te Papa to showcase some of these materials science technologies and the contribution they can make to mitigating our changing climate.

“Our new partnership with the MacDiarmid Institute allows us to showcase some of New Zealand’s leading research on materials science relating to building a more sustainable future.”
