Science Spinners creates opportunities in low decile Waikato schools and strives to make science relevant to everyday life and expand students’ knowledge of science-based careers.
Our science outreach programme for year 9&10 students is run with the support of Kudos Award-winning scientists, who present fun, interactive and creative activities in the Medical, Food Technology, Environmental, Digital Tech and Sport Science fields. Science Spinners Creative Lab launched in 2016 with funding from MBIE and the Unlocking Curious Minds Investment Fund. In 2017, Science Spinners introduced the digital arm of the program – CodeHub. The Trust is working to increase the number of Science Spinners events and expand from its current low-decile school focus to include all Waikato schools.
