Join us on a voyage of discovery about the technology and innovation that brought people to Aotearoa. Armed with their ancestral knowledge and a bigger vision of science - mātauranga - they created our land of voyagers. These extraordinary engineers, scientists, and mathematicians created the paving stones upon which we stand today.

Teacher's Guide

Welcome to the Mātauranga Online Learning Platform. Our mission is to help tamariki learn from the past to navigate the future. Innovation is in our DNA, and with our engaging videos and fun activities, we prove that science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) is not something to be afraid of. It's part of a much bigger world view - mātauranga.

Land of Voyagers — WEBSITE/ANIMATIONS/VIDEO

"Land of Voyagers" is being created as a koha, a gift, to be shared with all the rangatahi of Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Each week we will be adding new…

The paper discusses how these narratives can be used as powerful pedagogical tools that enhance Te Tai Tokerau Māori students’ self-efficacy, aspiration, optimism, and cultural pride, presenting them as powerful agents of their own destiny.
