Encouraging STEM in high schools

Central Northland Science and Technology Fair

This annual high school science fair encourages STEM activities and paths of study at high school.

The Fair is open to students in Years 7 – 13 and is well supported by schools across the region. Students choose an exhibit topic which is set to challenge their imagination and encourages the development of investigative and problem-solving skills. Several past winners have continued to pursue their interests in science and technology through their tertiary studies.

Northpower sponsors a number of award categories including the Year 9 Award, the George (Hoori) Tuhiwai Memorial Award and the Consistent Excellence Award which recognises consistent efforts over three science and technology fairs and awards the recipient with $1000 towards tertiary education.
