The Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka! Awards National Finals Symposium returns to the Dominion Museum Theatrette this year after a couple of years up the road at Massey University's "The Pit" Lecture Theatre. We like the idea of returning to our original site because it means we can live -stream our proceedings to our alumni and friends around the world.
We will miss Nanogirl from the Judging Panel this year but the famous Kim Hill and our Chairman Dr Russ Ballard will ensure there is a wealth of experience there.
Dr Michelle Dickinson has to be in South America on 8 September otherwise she would have been a fantastic contributor to the panel once again.
Dr Stephen Goldson who is Strategy Advisor to the Prime Minister's Chief Science Advisor (and who was a Judge for us from 2012 to 2014) comes back onto the panel to join Dr Kate McGrath Pro-Vice Chancellor Research from VUW and Dr William Rolleston from Federated Farmerrs of NZ.
