More than 230 senior secondary science pupils from throughout
New Zealand will take part in the University of Otago's 25th
hands-on science summer camp, which starts tomorrow.
Organisers said the mix of hands-on science and fun social
activities had long proved successful, offering positive
learning opportunities for pupils from remote country areas,
as well as from cities.
A strong supporter of the annual school, Emeritus Prof John
Tagg, will give a public lecture at the university's St David
lecture theatre at 7.30pm on Monday.
As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations, Prof Jim
Metson, of Auckland University, will be present on Friday
when pupils report back on their research projects.
