Young sci­en­tists on show

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS - RICHARD MAYS

Through­out the year, bright young minds have been at work.

Some 2000 pri­mary to sec­ondary school stu­dents have been busy on science and tech­nol­ogy in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

Most schools have held their own science and tech­nol­ogy fairs to se­lect the best projects for the re­gional event on this week.

‘‘The Fon­terra Manawatu Science and Tech­nol­ogy Fair will be show­cas­ing some of the most in­no­va­tive, thought­ful and clever projects from the youth of our re­gion,’’ science fair com­mit­tee mem­ber Adrian Bul­ford said.

This year there’s a Pasi­fika sec­tion with its own prizes for en­trants with Pasi­fika con­nec­tions, sup­ported by the Min­istry for Pa­cific Peo­ples.

The science fair runs from Fri­day, Au­gust 19 to Sun­day, Au­gust 21 at the Bar­ber Hall on Walde­grave St.

‘‘Once again our gold level prin­ci­pal spon­sor is Fon­terra and we would like to ac­knowl­edge their gen­er­ous sup­port of the fair.’’

Sil­ver level sup­port­ers are AgRe­search and Massey Univer­sity with bronze level spon­sor Dairy NZ.

The award cer­e­mony is on Satur­day, Au­gust 20 at 6.30pm at the Palmer­ston North Girls’ High School Huia Cen­tre in Fitzher­bert Ave.

The ex­hibits can be viewed on Satur­day from 10am to 5pm and Sun­day from 10am to mid­day in the Bar­ber Hall.

2015 prizewin­ners Polly Wil­liams, Mad­di­son McQueen and Sarah Grant.
