Science Tutoring Service now on offer

Science Tutoring Service now on offer at House of Science Tauranga

April 2014: A new science tutoring service commences in May as the Tauranga community embraces the new Science centre.

In a first for the Bay of Plenty region, the House of Science will be offering specific Science tutoring for students from primary school through to level 3 NCEA. There will be a range of prices parents can choose from, depending on the experience of the tutor.

“This is a direct response to a need in our community.” Says Chris Duggan, Director of the House of Science. She reports a growing request for a science tutoring service as the House of Science programmes have become increasingly popular.

The after school kids programme has been a huge success in term one,
the April holiday programme has been fully subscribed since early March and the term two programmes are already full as well. Meanwhile the teacher professional development sessions in term one have seen close to 200 teachers through the doors at the House of Science facilities at Sulphur Point.

“We are providing a novel approach to Science education, and connecting local industries to our schools.

Teachers are blown away by the innovation in our region and the science that underpins it.”

Chris says the Bay of Plenty businesses that are sponsoring the library of teaching kits are delighted to be able to support local schools with hands on science equipment. There are now 33 House of Science member schools and Chris is keen to be able to provide the science resources these schools so desperately need. If you would like to support this charitable trust please contact Chris via the website:
