Nanogirl’s Super World Clever Creatures Of Aotearoa Backyard Explorer Pack

Discover the superpowers of New Zealand’s backyard bugs!

Grab your book, load up your bag, pack your bug viewer and fire up your curiosity – it’s time to discover the superpowers of New Zealand’s clever creatures with Nanogirl!

Join Nanogirl on her mission to discover which of New Zealand’s clever creatures can grow their own armour, catch prey by using super slime and use solar-powered wings to fly.

Designed to encourage Kiwi kids to explore hidden science in their local natural environment, whether it’s their local park or their own back garden.

This ‘unplugged’ activity box will engage Kiwi kids in the exploration of natural sciences and inspire families to get outdoors and discover science right on their doorstep.

The activity box includes a beautiful, 76-page hardcover book called Nanogirl’s Super World Clever Creatures of Aotearoa, a robust box – which doubles as a bug hotel, inline with our sustainability focus; a magnifying bug viewer and an explorer bag for children to carry their equipment while they’re exploring. The book includes a wide range of educational and entertaining activities, profiles of native New Zealand insects and other creatures, plus real scientist role models making a difference through their research here in New Zealand. The bug viewer has built-in air holes to keep your bug safe while you take a closer look through the magnifying lid and measure features using the grid scale.

This activity box is part of Nanogirl’s latest STEM learning programme to inspire, educate and empower a new generation of STEM-loving explorers.
