We provide funding to programmes that assist and recognise talented school students.
Curious Minds provides funding to programmes that assist and recognise talented school students through the Talented School Students Travel Awards and the CREST Awards.
These awards support intermediate and secondary school students from across New Zealand who have been selected to attend international science and technology events. The awards are funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) and managed by the Royal Society Te Apārangi.
CREST is an international awards scheme designed to encourage students in years 0–13 to solve problems in science, technology and environmental studies with innovative and creative approaches. MBIE part-funds these awards, which are managed by the Royal Society Te Apārangi.
