Maori science internships

The University of Otago has launched a pilot internship programme aimed at Maori engagement in the science industry.

As part of the programme, three Maori undergraduate and postgraduate students at Otago University will spend 10 weeks hosted at Crown Research Institute Industrial Research in Wellington, starting this month.

Otago University associate Maori dean Dr Stephen Scott said students were "very excited to take up this unique opportunity to explore the world of Maori business and to apply the knowledge they have gained at university".
