The Sir Peter Blake Trust, in partnership with New Zealand Geographic, is excited to announce our newest experiential learning programme for students - NZ-VR, our newest outreach programme which we hope will connect thousands of young Kiwis with the marine environment, launching into schools in 2019.
Using virtual reality, students will experience the rich biodiversity that exists below the surface of the Hauraki Gulf and connected open spaces, as well as the damage that's been done to the ecosystem.
Register at www.sirpeterblaketrust.org/nz-vr.
Dates: 18–26 May.
