Five months from his first New Zealand International Science Festival as director, Dan Hendra is not looking at all nervous.
Hardly surprising for someone who, in a previous life, performed as a fire-eater.
Project Activate was a health initiative project as part of the 2016 New Zealand International Science Festival, in Dunedin, New Zealand, and made possible thanks to the governments' Unlocking Curious Minds initiative.
In mid 2017 the New Zealand International Science Festival project managed an investigation into the ground water situation in South Dunedin, New Zealand.
The aim of the project was to empower secondary school students and engage them together alongside scientists and professionals in a hands-on project where they could investigate the changing nature of the physical environment.
Pupils from Bayfield and Kings High Schools recently presented their work to an engaged community audience. The event was final step in the Curious Minds project around investigating ground water and climate change in South Dunedin.
