What is Eureka?

The mission of the Eureka Trust is to “identify and foster young leaders who through their knowledge of science, technology, engineering or mathematics, their entrepreneurial drive and persuasive communication skills will bring about the vision of New Zealand as foreseen by Sir Paul Callaghan”. We achieve this mission through the Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka Awards (Years 11 to Undergraduate), the Eureka Alumni and the Junior Eureka programme (Years 4 to 6).

The Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka Awards are a science, technology, engineering and mathematics speech competition that focuses on increasing New Zealand's economic, environmental and social wealth and well being. Students prepare for the Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka Awards using the Eureka Online workshop which contains everything they need to make a successful presentation. All students who compete in the National Final become part of the Eureka Alumni.

Junior Eureka is focused on educating students on how science and technology is being used in their local community and how to talk about science and technology with their friends and family.
