Discovering nanoscience

The MacDiarmid team inspired us, as Maori and Pacific youth, to get out there and keep discovering—the possibilities are endless.

Our NanoCamp and DiscoveryCamp continue to attract high numbers of applications from Year 12 and 13 secondary students. This year, 10 times as many students applied for NanoCamp as there were places, and four times as many as there were places for DiscoveryCamp. 

The five-day all-expenses paid residential programmes deliver practical lab experience with MacDiarmid Institute investigators. This year the programmes were run by Associate Professor Guy Jameson (University of Otago), Professor Maan Alkaisi (Canterbury) and Professor Shane Telfer (Massey University).
