Estimated Time: 6 - 40 Hours Over 1 - 3 Months

We have been collating a number of resources that teachers can use to enhance their students learning pre, during and post visits to our museum. We would like volunteers with an education background to assist us in developing more resources for this kit. This could be guide and coming up with the ideas or/and in addition for any volunteer who may be developing those ideas into resources we can use. This could be a good project fro a small team effort.

Working location

We are based in Riverton in Southland but are happy to work virtually with volunteers
