Kids Create

Kids Create is a long form, authentic learning experience where learners curate their own response using a channel of their own selection.

Learners become artists, exhibition designers, and copywriters; teachers become project managers.

Our educators travel to your school to deliver workshops.

Get involved in our Kids Create programme and create your own exhibition at the Navy Museum.

Contact our educator to discover how you and your students can work with us to develop your own Kids Create programme.

Kids Create Exhibition - Operation Science on now!

Fifty-six science experiments designed and tested by over 100 students from Belmont Intermediate School in Auckland formed the exhibition Operation Science on display from December 2023.

The budding scientists were inspired by science experts from Defence Science & Technology (DST) to engage in real-world science. DST is a specialised unit which enables the New Zealand Defence Force through the application of leading-edge applied science, technology and engineering. With the support of their teachers, DST scientists and the Navy Museum education team, the students focused on the New Zealand Navy’s role in Antarctica investigating, “How does science and technology influence human performance?”

The student-led inquiry involved six classes of year 7 students who acted as scientists, supported and directed by the Navy Museum educator Emma Wilcox and scientists from Defence Science & Technology.

Operation Science is on now in the Foyer Gallery until April, 2024.
