Science Communicator Award (sponsored by the Nelson Science Society)
Confident at speaking? Passionate about telling people about your work? Science communication is of great importance, scientists need to be able to let people know about their research. We have a specific prize for science communication. You must be willing to give a 7-10 minute talk to an audience about your project. Please be aware that only a selection process will take place at your school before the Scitec Expo so that on the day we have a maximum of 10 presentations.
