The students of Powering Potential are set to be the leading scientists and innovators of our future. Come and see how they collaborate and seek solutions for key issues facing our nation.
Powering Potential brings together talented students with passion and skills for science and technology for a problem solving workshop. From Whāngārei to Gore, forty Year 12 and Year 13 students (who intend to study in these disciplines at a tertiary level) have been selected by an independent selection panel for this opportunity.
The workshop puts students into teams where they focus on a question/problem that has been presented to them by mentor, who is either a scientist, or a researcher studying for their PhD in science.
Teams are given 48 hours to concentrate on their issue. They will need to collaborate, research and brainstorm ideas to find innovative and relevant solutions. Each team is then expected to deliver a six minute presentation with visuals based around their findings and recommendations.
Refreshments will follow the students' presentations.
