Rotary National Science and Technology Forum is a 2 week live in programme for outstanding Year 12 students, held in January each year and based in Auckland.
 
 
This programme is for high performing, all round science, maths and technology students in Year 12 who will be returning to Year 13 and are planning to study the sciences or technology at tertiary level.

This 2 week fully residential programme is conducted by Rotary and the Tertiary Institutions of Auckland. By the end of the Forum students should have a better understanding of the tertiary courses they wish to follow and a fuller appreciation of the place of science and technology in the wider community.  It also provides an opportunity for high achieving students to spend time with similar minded people, and the experiences gained invariably result in overall personal growth and renewed motivation to succeed.
 
Applications from students MUST be lodged with Waikanae Rotary Club, who will interview & endorse them before forwarding to the District Coordinator who will then make the final District selections.
 
At both Club and District level, selection is based on positive personal qualities and proven scholastic achievement.
 
Successful students should be advised by the District Coordinator by end September.
 
Selected applicants have the opportunity to win a place at either the Canberra (1 per District) or the London International Youth Science Forum (2 Forum places).
