Maggie Yang attends Rotary National Science & Technology Forum
Over the summer break one of our top Science students, Maggie Yang was selected from students around the country to take part in the Rotary National Science and Technology Forum. The two week forum was run by Auckland University with support from Massey University, Auckland University of Technology as well as a number of Science and Technology industry groups and companies. It was a fantastic opportunity for Maggie to get hands-on experience with cutting edge Science as well as gaining exposure to the sorts of pathways available to students with an interest in Science and Technology.
Highlights from the event included a visit to the Auckland University Medical School to look at current research projects, a workshop on the Science of video making and a visit to HERA, a heavy metal engineering start-up.
Many thanks to our local Rotary branch for their support in helping Takapuna Grammar students attend the forum.
