The Cawthron Scitec Expo is bigger than ever this year. We have over 350 entries from all over Nelson and Tasman. This year has been a year of changes and it is great to see that these are encouraging more students participating in this astonishing event.

This expo is open to the public and we would love to encourage you to come and be amazed by the talent and hard work from our budding science and technologists.

Wed 27 Sept- Primary Judging day 9-2, Public 3-6pm

Thurs 28 Sept- Secondary Judging day 9-2, Public 3-6pm

It is a fantastic community event, bringing together scientists, students, teachers, local and national businesses all working together to support our regions young enquiring minds. There are over 80 prizes for students (total worth $8000).

This year will be the first to see project entered in Te Reo Māori, which allows students to participate without distinction between what language medium they are learning in. To support students we have prizes and support from Wakatu Inc. It is also the first year where we have an Art in Science section and a research section. Both these new sections have proven very popular with high number of entries.

We continue to encourage science communication, which is of upmost importance. Students wishing to win the science communicators prize, sponsored by the Nelson Science Society will be giving a five-minute talk about their project.
