Student engagement in science is an issue of international concern. Research indicates that one way to increase engagement in science is to involve students in authentic and relevant contexts that promote an enquiry-based stance. A key aspect to engaging students is to provide teachers with educative materials. In today’s world teachers and students look to web-based materials for their own development and learning. This paper will provide a conceptual framework for the development of the New Zealand Science Learning Hub as well as describing the process of its development, its component parts and their relationship to the conceptual frame.
