Project extended

The wonderful folk at MBIE's Curious Minds have given us a no-cost extension of the Ahi Pepe | MothNet project until the end of the first term (primary school). Of course the workshop has run and completed and we have no extra money but if you know of an extremely keen primary school - especially a small rural one or a Māori immersion (e.g. TKKM) School that you think would be keen to join the experiment phase it's worth giving us a shout out to see if we can work something out.

There's an abundance of information from the workshop on the project website. Go to the Resources link and you'll get downloadable pdfs of all the workshop resources. These cover every stage and step of the experiment.

Also check out the rest of this project blog.

Also remember I'm (Barbara Anderson, project manager) almost always available through the @MothNetNZ twitter feed or by commenting on the MothNet Facebook page.

We'd love you to:

  • Ask us questions
  • Post photos
  • Tell us your moth stories

We're going to start running some give away competitions so stay tuned!
