Twelve leading secondary school science pupils spent last week at the Manawatu campus learning the wonders of nanoscience during Nanocamp.

Summer ‘Nanocamp’ keeps young scientists indoors

New Zealand | Posted on January 25th, 2011

The annual camp, sponsored by the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, sees pupils take part in workshops covering nanoparticles, microscopy and the use of optical tweezers.

Senior chemistry lecturer Dr Shane Telfer says the camp gives potential students the chance to experience university-level science and hopefully get them interested in pursuing it at a tertiary level.

Participants were chosen from across New Zealand and included 16-year-old Eugene Campbell from Shirley Boys' High School in Christchurch, who described the camp as an enjoyable alternative to previous summers. "I was bored with the usual holiday so I thought I'd try something different," he says. "We can't learn this level of science at school so it's fun."
