South Dunedin Project - looking at the changing ground environment

  • 20 Sep 2017

 

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.

The project was made possible thanks to funding from the governments' Curious Minds initiative and the Otago Regional Council. Project partners included GNS Science, the Otago Regional Council, and the University of Otago, with support from Kings High School, Bayfield High School and Van Walt Limited.
