Chris Duggan, House of Science NZ, Tauranga
2019 Bright Spots Awardee
Desperate to improve science programmes in New Zealand primary and intermediate schools, former Head of Science at Tauranga Girls College Chris Duggan established House of Science, a charitable trust which develops and delivers hands-on bilingual science resources to primary schools. Initially launched in Tauranga, House of Science resources are now available in 10% of New Zealand primary schools. With the support of a Bright Spots Award, Chris and her team hope they can roll that out to reach all schools nationwide.
