Massey opens its doors to the public
Students take the chance to check out university and its courses
Teslim Raheem was at Massey University’s open day last week to acquaint himself with the campus and listen to a presentation on nursing.
From Nigeria, the 16-year-old Palmerston North Boys’ High student has lived in Palmerston North for three years and said he was excited to discover more about his chosen profession.
Second year social policy student Sarah Teki made the move from Whanganui to Palmerston North in February and loves studying at Massey.
Sarah sat watching the new and current students at the open day.
She said she wanted to get life experience and once she graduates her plan is to enter the police force.
On the surface it looked like milky water, but science graduate Ben Westberry had used his science knowledge to make ooblek, a half tonne of cornstarch and water. He then invited people to run across the mix; when pressure was applied it was stiff under foot, but when handled it flowed from his hands. Ben is studying the behaviour of gels for his PhD thesis and says he comes across unusual things during research.
