    Mahuika Mahuika, the keeper of fire possesses many traits such as kaitīaki/guardianship, responsible, insightful, long fuse/patient, protector, fierce, social good. These same traits can guide us online. #belikemahuika


    Māui possesses qualities like playfulness, innovative, adaptable, growth mindset, risk-taker, curiosity, problem solver, crafty, goal-oriented, active pursuit, bug fixer and collaborator. #belikemāui

        I am a bit of a combination of Maui and Mahuika. I am curious, a risk-taker and have a growth mindset like Maui and I am responsible, insightful and I have a long fuse like Mahuika.

            I am a combination of Mahuika - insightful, patient and responsible, and Maui - curious, adaptable, problem solver, with a growth mindset.  Always seeking and wanting to learn more.

              I am more like Maui. I like to try new things and problem-solve along the way.

                I believe that I have traits from both Mahuika and Maui in terms of learning.

                Mahuika:  patient, insightful, responsibility and protectiveness.
                Maui: adaptable, creative, growth mindset, goal-orientated and very curiosity.

                    I'm more like Maui, always taking risks, backing myself and 100% ok with not knowing everything about the DT curriculum but willing learn

                        I am both for sure, depending on the context!  I like to see what the end looks like but will be methodical in the way that I learn about it.

                          I would say I'm more like Mahuika but hope to be more like Maui in some ways!
