Smart Water have formed a collaboration with Waikato University’s Science Learning Hub to bring you 'Smart Water for Schools'. The fantastic thing about this partnership is that we are utilising and sharing many great resources that have already been created by the likes of Science Hub and Waikato Regional Council.
• Water in nature
• Te Mana o te Wai
• Global water perspectives
• Water in the Waikato
• Water treatment
• Being smart with water
Our Smart Water teaching resources are designed for Y5–8, learning at levels 3–4 of the New Zealand Curriculum. Due to the nature of the modules and the numerous links to extra resources they can be adapted for use at any level. Lessons enable an integrated approach with the ability to cater to various curriculum subjects such as science, technology, English, social sciences, health and maths.
