The Future of Science Alive: 2022 and beyond


Since the loss of widely loved Science Alive in Christchurch as a result of the 2010/2011 Canterbury earthquakes, Science Alive 

has been operating outreach programmes - visiting schools and communities, sharing our love of science and technology. 


Now, after much planning, with 2022 comes the new, rejuvenated Science Alive. Our team have quietly been working on how best to deliver our mission to promote, inspire and engage people with the endless opportunities that the world of science holds. 


We believe in the potential of every child and are driven to spark hope, excitement and curiosity within our future generations. We recognise that the world is changing at an unprecedented rate, and the demands and lifestyles of our youth are moving with this. 


In 2022 Science Alive is launching a suite of activities to cater to this, including online virtual education resources, new outreach programmes, in-community exhibitions and educator support. We will continue to develop more offerings and engagements with our communities, and provide more information as these become available. 


Science Alive is back and determined to be better than ever, continuing to deliver our mission well into the future, bringing science to everyone, everywhere, everyday.


Thank you to our communities for your support and camaraderie during these times of change. We look forward to continuing to serve you. 


Ngā Mihi,


Science Alive Team
