WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

Science Spinners is a FREE hands-on STEM rotational programme helping to ignite students passion about science! Three fully-interactive, one-day programmes for students in years 9-13 cover schools right across the Waikato, the Bay of Plenty including Rotorua and Auckland.

Led by carefully curated Kudos scientists, professionals in STEM fields and digi-tech experts, our programmes offer interactive engagement and problem-based learning in a ‘real world’ environment, focusing on real challenges relevant to to the youth of Aotearoa.

Science Spinners is the Kudos Science Trust’s education and outreach arm, connecting students with scientists, experts and industry through practical hands-on STEM programmes. Our work is made possible by the generous support of the Ministry of Pacific Peoples, and of our sponsors and venue partners. >See all of our sponsors here

We’re about giving students a taste of science in a way that’s interesting, engaging and empowering to inspire them into the exciting world of STEM careers.

Watch out for 2023 dates and new programme announcements coming soon!

Our Science Spinners programme is run yearly at the Claudelands EXPO centre, and each year brings together even more students, scientists and industry members to connect! The four-day event will see nearly 600 students across almost 30 high schools get involved, along with 70 scientists and STEM professionals, and 45 science, innovation and tech organisations. And for the first time this year, we’ll be hosting our STEMHUB programme for Years 11-13 in Manukau, Auckland!

 

Spots for both locations will be very limited, so schools are encouraged to apply early from 24 April onwards.

On behalf of Te Puke High School’s science department, I would like to thank the Kudos Science Trust for enabling rich science opportunities for our students through the Science Spinners workshops.

 

For some students, the workshops have been an absolute turning point for their future career pathways. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the Kudos Awards Trust into the future.
