The Manawatu Science and Technology Fair

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.

This year Amanaki STEM Academy had a few students enter the competition and all our students came away with a multitude of prizes. We are incredibly proud of the following students:
