Sixteen prizes for WHS at 2014 Science Fair

Wellington High School students gained sixteen prizes at the NIWA annual Science Fair awards for 2014. This is a fantastic result and was the highest of any school in the Wellington Region. A full list of awards can be viewed at Congratulations to all the prize recipients and to all the teachers who have encouraged and nurtured students towards this annual event. Callum Davidson received prizes to the value of $1300, Jack Tregidga has received a fully funded trip to the University of Otago next January to attend Hands on Science. Callum was interviewed by 3News and the video is here. Curiously, 2 out of the 3 students got to say their name and what school they attend. Our student, Callum, didn’t get this opportunity. What’s up with that TV3?
