Project Creation
for kaiako and ākonga.

We would love to work with your ākonga to help refine a project they have in the early stages of design. We will do this by working alongside and assisting with the design process, and work through the development and physical creation of prototypes. Here is an opportunity for your students to have access to funded time with experts from our Christchurch City Libraries and to exciting technologies onsite. 

You provide us with an overview of your project, and what you would like the final outcome to potentially be. We will then work with our staff around space available, expert knowledge required and the amount of time needed to make this happen. 

This hui best suited to a group of 5 -12 ākonga. This will make sure ākonga receive a personalised approach to their project creation. 

 

Hui may be hosted at Tūranga, Te Hāpua: Halswell Centre or South Learning Centre depending on the availability of staff and spaces. (there may be other options for library spaces depending on the project. Please note your preference at the time of enquiry)

Steps

  1. Have a look through the Project Creation hui to the right.

  2. Register your interest on the form with which project tool you would like to access.

  3. The facilitator will be in touch to arrange a date with you.

What you need:​
