You're invited to watch the National Finals of the sixth Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka! Awards!

The finals will feature 12 secondary school and undergraduate students who will present their ideas for innovative uses of science and technology to make New Zealand become “the most beautiful, stimulating and exciting place in the world in which to live and work.”

Each speaker will talk about how a science or technology-driven idea can help solve a New Zealand problem and in doing so increase New Zealand’s economic, environmental and social wealth and well-being.

Contestants first present a six minute summary speech at one of the Eureka! regional competitions or by submitting a video of their presentation through the virtual region.

From the regional competitions, twelve students are selected to compete in the Eureka! National Finals for the Sir Paul Callaghan Premier Award, prize money and scholarships valued at over $100,000.
