Our Mission

NIWA Wellington Regional Science & Technology Fair (NWRSTF) inspires young people to change the world through science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.

NWRSTF provides opportunities for students to showcase their innovations and discoveries.

2021 Results

NIWA Wellington Regional Science & Technology Fair proudly announces 143 awards for 2021. We had 204 entries from 23 schools in the Wellington region this year. NWRSTF provides students with a larger stage at the regional level to present original research and celebrates the hard work and novel discoveries of young scientists who bring a fresh perspective to significant global challenges.

2022 Challenges

NWRSTF is introducing a series of STEAM Challenges for students to consider for the 2022 competition. The objective is to strengthen students’ capability to engage with science for a better future.
