MOANA - MY OCEAN
Venture into an unknown world
Te ara o Hauraki
OPENS 21 JUNE 2013, SPECIAL EXHIBITION HALL, FREE
2013 sees Auckland Museum embark on a major exploration of our ocean. Considered to be Auckland’s playground, we actually know less about our oceans than we do about space.
In June we will open a free major immersive exhibition that will take you from the flight of the godwits on the east coast, into the waters of the Leigh marine reserve, through a mid-ocean boil-up – then down 10km through the largely unknown deep waters, to the Kermadec trench then up to Kermadec Islands.
As part of this exhibition the Museum will be offering a rich variety of programmes, from expert sessions to hands-on activities.
Make sure you sign up to our e-newsletter so you don’t miss any of these exciting programmes this winter.
‘…the ocean is a pathway to mystery. It used to be called the deep, and that’s because its life is larger and richer than anything we can conceive. The ocean is a pathway to a world we hardly begin to understand.’Bill Manhire

As part of the exhibition we are offering a rich eLearning programme aligned to key competencies of the NZ Curriculum. We will grant exclusive digital access to ‘raw material’ from the exhibition context that students can use to explore and develop their own research projects.
Students can decide to submit a research paper. An expert panel will nominate the most interesting ideas and invite the students to present them at the Museum.
- Give your students exclusive access to the digital ‘raw material’ we used to create this exhibition
- Engage your Y7-Y13 students in relevant science by using this material to explore and research their own projects and ideas in class
- Work with them to present their findings inside the Museum – or even at the TEDxYouth Auckland conference
- Benefit from expert-reviewed evaluation of student research papers
- Learn to use the tools in our dedicated teacher workshops
You can download a PDF fact sheet here . Full details will be available here on our website shortly.
