Last night in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington, 40 tauira students presented their solutions to some of the world's biggest problems at Powering Potential.
This is an opportunity that brings together tauira from across Aotearoa to collaborate, research and offer solutions to significant world issues. Mentored by Rutherford Discovery Fellows (RDFs), tauira are given only two days before they have to present their findings.
Students were put into ten groups of four, based on their interests. In their groups, they worked tirelessly with guidance from their kaiārahi mentors to investigate topics ranging from nutrition to genetics, to conservation and climate change.
Kia ora! Thank you to all of the tauira and kaiārahi who participated in 2020 Powering Potential. Your innovative and engaging presentations made for an inspiring end to a challenging year! Thank you as well to everyone who came and watched the presentations.
