Very enjoyable camp, it allowed me to explore nano-science which I never knew was a thing, however, it has now caught my interest. The timetable was good, the right amount of schedule vs freedom. The staff and helpers were amazing and really helped make me feel welcome.Tamaira Barcham DiscoveryCamp 2019
Every January, a group of science-savvy and passionate Year 12 and 13 Māori and Pasifika students attend DiscoveryCamp, a one week science camp hosted by the MacDiarmid Institute. The 2018 cohort of DiscoveryCamp students made a short video of their time in Wellington showing the fun and hands-on work they did in and out of the lab with some of New Zealand’s top researchers.
