The National Science & Technology Forum is a programme for OUTSTANDING all round science, maths and technology students in Year 12 who will be returning to Year 13 and are planning to study the sciences or technology at tertiary level.

This fully residential programme is conducted by Rotary and the Tertiary Institutions of Auckland. By the end of the Forum students should have a better understanding of the tertiary courses they wish to follow and a fuller appreciation of the place of science and technology in the wider community. It also provides an opportunity for high achieving students to spent time with similar minded people and the experiences gained invariably result in overall personal growth and renewed motivation to succeed.
 
The registration fee is about $1750 incl. GST and tax invoices will be provided. The fee covers the cost of accommodation, tuition and transport in Auckland. Travel to and from Auckland for NZ students living more than 70km from the venue is also met by the Forum organisation. It is usual for the sponsoring Rotary Club to pay part of the fee with the balance to be paid by the applicants. It is important for the students make a contribution themselves please. The amount that the student is to pay needs to be determined and recorded at the interview to avoid any confusion.
 
The next forum will be held at Auckland University 13-27 January 2018.
 
The District Coordinator is John O'Hara.
