What are Science Fairs?
Science and Technology Fairs are well established, successful and high profile events, which take place annually throughout New Zealand at classroom, regional and national levels. Science and Technology Fairs have been operating in New Zealand for over 30 years. Annually, they involve at least 50,000 children from years 7-13 in 23 regional Fairs.
Regional Science Fairs are run by local committees of volunteers, including science teachers, service clubs such as Kiwanis, and Royal Society Branches. The BOP Regional Fair involves schools from Whakatane, Awakeri, Katikati, Tauranga, Te Puke, Rotorua, Reporoa, and Taupo.
Powering Potential is the exciting national event which will be held in Wellington in December and feature forty successful and passionate science students who are in Year 12 and Year 13.
Powering Potential will not only challenge students but will also enhance their problem solving, team building and collaboration skills. They will get to meet and make friends with lots of other like-minded students from all over New Zealand. They will also network and talk with scientists who have had to solve their own problems.
Powering Potential will be inspiring, fun, challenging and empowering. Students that are selected will learn lots about themselves and will be encouraged and mentored to think outside the square so that they will be motivated, divergent thinkers in the future.
Science Fairs contribute to ensuring the provision of New Zealand's future human capacity in research, science and technology by:
encouraging young people to engage in scientific and technological practice encouraging students to enter careers in science and technology and supporting them in the early stages demonstrating the value of science and technology in other careers identifying promising individuals and providing opportunities to foster their growth and development.
