What is hands on learning?

Hands-on learning is a form of experiential learning, i.e. learning through experience. In the classroom, this can mean building things, playing games, and interacting with objects. Hands on learning can be more stimulating and memorable for students aiding comprehension and retention.

Hands on ocean learning for the classroom

In partnership with the House of Science, we've developed hands-on learning resources to build ocean literacy in the classroom.

House of Science kits are:

  • packed full of all the materials needed to carry out engaging science lessons
  • bilingual in English and te reo Māori
  • delivered to schools using a subscription-based library system.
