The Mind Lab by Unitec is partnering with the Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) to move its education programmes from their current Newmarket site to MOTAT’s premises in Auckland’s Western Springs.
From April 2018, learning specialists from The Mind Lab will run their Tech Toolbox, school and holiday programmes from a purpose-built facility at the museum’s Great North Road site.
“Over the past four and a half years our Carlton Gore site has become an icon,” said Frances Valintine, Chair and Founder of The Mind Lab by Unitec. “This new partnership with MOTAT is the start of a new era and students will experience the best of both worlds – MOTAT’s immersive learning environment combined with the hi-tech digital world of The Mind Lab by Unitec.”
Michael Frawley, MOTAT Museum Director and Chief Executive, added: “We are delighted to finalise this three-year partnership of like-minded institutions. With the option to combine courses from The Mind Lab by Unitec with our regular LEOTC programmes or a museum visit, schools can now build a truly memorable learning experience.”
The EdTech Educators from The Mind Lab’s team will make the move to the Museum during March. The first Tech Toolbox intake for 2018 will start on 21 March and school group programmes launch in April.
