Tēnā koutou katoa,
The Waikato Science and Technology Fair committee would like to acknowledge the effort and hard mahi that the students have put into their entries this year.
Unfortunately, we feel running a full physical fair is not possible under the current Covid alert level. Thus we will be running a slightly amended fair where exhibits (Boards) can be displayed and judged in the last week of Term 3. This will go ahead if we are at alert levels 1 or 2.
We ask that a school representative drop off and set up the display boards at St Paul’s Collegiate School on Tuesday 28th September. Schools will be sent sign up sheets to book a time to drop off and pick up exhibits.
It is critical student’s name(s), School name and exhibit code number, which has been sent to schools, is on the back of the board.
Please make sure the logbook is included and named, including the school name. Props cannot be included (Students will not be penalised for this)
Please note, wallcharts, photography, observational drawings and videos have been judged and apart from videos will be available for pick up on the Thursday,
Due to the volatile nature of these Covid times, we will not be having a prize-giving event, but prizes and awards will be distributed to schools to present by the first week of term 4.
Our commitment is to recognise the outstanding scientific endeavours that students (with the support of their whanau) have produced. We feel that this is the safest and fairest way in which we can provide students with an opportunity to be rewarded. We look forward to your support in making this year’s unique fair a memorable one.
