WITT Taranaki Science & Technology Fair

For the next three years, the Taranaki Science & Technology Fair has a new Principal Sponsor in WITT. For a third year in a row, IPL has sponsored the Science & Technology Fair, by awarding 3 special prizes for “Outstanding Experimental Technique” and by providing assistance for the judging of the scientific exhibits and projects.

Our lovely judge Pamela Chung was impressed by the number of entrants and the quality of the projects that our young minds have put forward once again. It’s great to see the community backing this type of initiative and supporting students’ interest in science. In spite of terrible weather on the day, the event was a success and the level of enthusiasm was palpable in the room.
