About the Curious Tamariki program:
Young people explore nature with scientists by joining an environmental science experience at a local park or reserve.
Then they attend a filmmaking workshop to learn how to capture and edit their own footage into a short film, all with the help of a professional documentary filmmaker!
Films will be on the big screen as part of a big showcase at the end of the year!
Science helps us see the world from a different perspective: it magnifies the microscopic, detects the invisible, and even shows us what happened long before humans arrived in Aotearoa.
A film also helps us see the world from a different perspective: it highlights different angles, puts someone else’s view in focus, and frames our everyday surroundings in surprising and entertaining ways.
That's why together they’re the perfect way to explore Kaipātiki's environment.
