Cawthron Scitec Expo.

The Cawthron Scitec Expo is an annual celebration of science for primary and secondary school students in the Nelson Tasman region.

This year the Expo is bigger than ever, with over 350 entries, two brand new sections and over 80 prizes to be won.

This fantastic community event is open to the public and we encourage you to come along and be amazed by the talent and hard work of our budding scientists and technologists.

Public viewing days

The annual Cawthron Scitec Expo is open to secondary students from Nelson and Tasman, and every second year is also open to primary schools.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to undertake a project or investigation and really expand themselves. Students learn skills that go beyond science or technology: data analysis, statistics and communication.
