As part of Te Papa’s Sunfish Science Extravaganza, a competition was run for school classes to come up with a name for our sharp tail sunfish. We got some very creative and witty suggestions and picking a winner proved a difficult task. After some consultation with fellow educators, a decision was reached…
Congratulations to Room 5 at Khandallah School for your winning name – Sunny Bill.
This class has won a chance to be taken through Te Papa’s natural history collection in our Tory St facility. I have been told the students in Room 5 are ‘over the moon, excited and really looking forward to their visit’ – and we are excited to meet the budding young scientists of Khandallah School!
Following their visit, Room 5 will have a chance to be guest bloggers on Te Papa’s blog to tell readers about the amazing things they saw and learned about on their visit.
