School Groups

Add something special to your courses with a school group visit to The Mind Lab in Auckland or Gisborne.

We offer learning experiences that support the development of the next generation of makers, doers, inventors and creators who will shape the future with new ways of working, thinking and living.

We cater to the needs of each child we come across – including those with learning disabilities. Our core philosophy recognises that education should be personalized to the individual, so understanding how these children learn best and adjusting lessons to suit is common practice here at the Lab

We are also able to support the progression of student learning in New Zealand Curriculum STEM learning areas, by the facility to deliver sequential programmes of learning for schools and Communities of Learning (CoLs) that are assessed to curriculum levels. This is particularly helpful for schools unable to find specialist teachers, and want their students to have technology rich learning.

Please contact us for more details on how we can tailor courses and learning for your staff and students!

After a visit to The Mind Lab your students will develop:

Technical skills key competencies as they learn through collaborative and creative challenges that encompass Science, Technology, Mathematics and Arts.

Learning by doing

Our school group sessions are generally investigative, open-ended and multidisciplinary, however we also provide sessions that link directly to the New Zealand National Curriculum (NZC).

For example, while you may choose to set your students a robotics challenge, you could also choose a session related more specifically towards light energy, forces, the human body, measurement, technological systems etc. All sessions involve hands-on, active learning experiences where students learn through doing and where discovery and creativity are actively encouraged.
