Festival Information

The New Zealand International Science Festival is a not-for-profit organisation that makes science accessible to everyone, everywhere. We are a passionate and small team with a big vision; to create educational experiences that inspire and capture the imagination. We achieve this by sharing knowledge in a fun and engaging way that helps people understand the world around them further. 

We are the largest science gathering in New Zealand, hosting over 200 science-related events each festival, reaching over 20,000 each time. Our goal is simple; to engage young people about the importance science plays in our daily lives and the positive difference it can make. We aim to give them access to quality science education and help to unlock curious minds. We also have a mission to cultivate awareness of science to the general public, inspiring them by its wonder and engaging them with its implications for the future.
