Science Alive! is a not-for-profit trust, dedicated to educating the public about science and technology, both in New Zealand and Internationally.

The Science Alive building was demolished after the 2011 Canterbury Earthquake; plans are underway for a new science centre.

We presently continue our important work with outreach programmes and events within the community. We have a dedicated team who visit schools, libraries, malls and run special events; providing opportunities for children, youth and adults to explore science.

All our programmes are developed and run by our team of experienced teachers and scientists. We aim to make science accessible to all, stimulating interest and fostering confidence.
