Topic outline

  • Science & Technology Fairs

      

    For students from year 9 to 13, who want to develop great science and/or technology research and practical skills and to learn more about what happens with science and/or technology in the real world.


    We use CREST (Creativity in Science and Technology) http://www.royalsociety.org.nz/teaching-learning/crest/ or NCEA Senior Practical Investigation project as helpful ways in developing a great project.


    We can also help with entries into Pacifica Fusion Science Section.


    Organisational Details

    Students will meet with Mrs Fletcher or Mrs Taylor, once a week to talk about their project, gain information, access to resources, help and support. The majority of the project is completed in the student’s own time.
