45th Manawatu Science & Technology Fair

Thank you to all the students and schools who participated in the 2018 Fonterra 45th Manawatu Science and Technology Fair.
Thank you to all of our sponsors and judges. We wouldn't be able to run this event and encourage our future scientists and technologists without your support.

The Manawatu Science and Technology fair is about encouraging students from year 0 to year 13 to think about the world around them. With a love for Science and Technology at the heart of most projects students learn valuable skills in data collection, critical thinking, problem solving and innovation to name but a few, that builds confidence and strong student ownership of their projects and results. In 2018, we successfully trialed digital display as a alternative to the traditional board, we will continue to build on this in 2019.

We look forward to receiving your exhibits for the Manawatu Science and Technology Fair.
