Roadshow puts science under the microscope


The wonders of science came to the heartland with the Science Roadshow calling in to the Blue Mountain College in Tapanui last Friday.

Pupils from Blue Mountain College, Tapanui and Heriot schools had access to 70 different hands-on science exhibits during the one-day show which is aimed at inspiring and captivating students with the wonders of science and technology.

Organised by the National Science-Technology Roadshow Trust it brings the celebration of science to rural and urban communities with the goal of preparing students for a future in New Zealand’s scientific industries.

It also helps science teachers with the skills, resources and technologies needed to help inspire their pupils to become savvy citizens and innovators of the future.
