Welcome to Hands-On Science

FREESTA funding not available for 2015

We are sorry but we have to announce that the Freemasons Charity are withdrawing their funding for Hands-On Science 2015.  We encourage you to contact your local Rotary or Lions clubs, schools, iwi organisations or hapu for funding.


Enrolments are welcome now!

Enrolment material for Hands-On Science 2015 has just been sent to schools, so look out for it – ask your HoD Science.

The goal of Hands-On Science is to demonstrate, in a friendly and interactive environment, some of the activities that scientists are involved in and to encourage talented young New Zealanders to consider science as a career. We do this by bringing students to New Zealand’s oldest and most attractive university, an institution having an international reputation for excellence in scientific research and teaching.

The dates for Hands-On Science 2015 are 11 – 16 January 2015. Registration fee is $650.

So get into it!
