NIWA has joined forces with F4 Art Collective, The University of Auckland and Imersia to teach children about air quality in a meaningful way.

O-Tū-Kapua or What Clouds See is a mixed media art installation at Auckland’s Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery that makes the invisible visible by combining science and art in an augmented reality setting.

Children, now and in the future, will increasingly have to cope with the social and environmental impacts of climate change, yet they remain largely excluded from the dialogue about climate.

O-Tū-Kapua (‘what clouds see’) introduces atmospheric science to children in a meaningful way, using imagery, language, the digital, music and other creative activities that enable participation, conversation, questioning and understanding.
