Why Science Alive?

We are accessible
Our education portal is designed to be seamlessly integrated into the classroom. Assign a variety of lessons with ease and ensure student accessibility with features like our immersive reader and video content. Each resource scaffolds surface to deep learning outcomes through layers of recall, reading comprehension and evidence-based activities. With a range of interactive resources designed for ages 7+: from quizzes and project-based learning experiences to hands-on science investigations, every lesson consolidates knowledge with optional practical activities to extend student thinking. Whether completing lessons as a class or independent self-directed tasks, we acknowledge and cater to varied access to devices. Most importantly, it is completely free for educators to use.
We are curious
Encouraging our young people to explore the world around them, our resources encompass a wide range of topics across Science, Technology and Innovation while organically threading language and Mātauranga from Māori and Pacific worldviews. Covering diverse concepts across the curriculum, we aim to promote 21st-century skills while highlighting inspirational leaders in STEAM fields. These lessons and activities provide unique experiences, breaking the mould of learning as we know it.
We are community-focused
Committed to honoring Te Tiriti o Waitangi and representing our diverse communities, a wide range of experts have contributed to the development of lessons that acknowledge our past, present and future populations. Our partnerships with key innovators and organisations allow us to create meaningful resources that cater to nationally and globally relevant contexts. The purpose behind our inclusion of te reo Māori and Pasifika languages within these resources is to encourage the participation of our main languages within mainstream classes in Aotearoa, and ensure our rangatahi are reflected in their own learning content.
We are innovative
With curriculum-aligned lessons that encourage out-of-the-box thinking, our resources empower students to challenge their mindset and understand different perspectives. Crafted and developed based on user feedback and expert knowledge, our resources cater to a range of ages, allowing rangatahi to engage with up-to-date content. These resources can act as a standalone experience or as a strong foundation of curiosity for extended learning and unexpected pathways of discovery.
