The DiscoveryCamp program enhanced my interests in science as a Māori student and helped better my understanding of the material sciences. Being presented with this gateway to nanotechnology was an amazing experience, filled with great people and fun activities.

DiscoveryCamp 2018

Every January, a group of science-savvy and passionate Year 12 and 13 Māori and Pacific Island 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.
