We need your help! Some Museum employees have mysteriously disappeared – without them the Museum can’t properly safeguard its collections and may have to close to the public.

In this session, learners take up the challenge to save the Museum.

Working in teams, learners will have to complete five scenarios which take them all over the Museum, play the different roles of Museum staff, and learn the skills of various specialists and why they are important to the Museum.

Who will be the first to complete the tasks and keep the Museum’s collections safe?

Learning Outcomes
Learners will:

· Work collaboratively while focusing on communication, leadership and time management skills to solve problems

· Extend their understanding of the Museum works and experience the roles of staff

· Use and demonstrate the Key Competencies outlined in the New Zealand Curriculum

Please note: minimum 20 students, maximum 30 students per session
