Alumni Updates is an ongoing series where we will post life, education, research and career updates from Eureka Alumni around the world.
It's only two weeks until twelve aspiring young science leaders face the judging panel in 2018 Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka! Awards National Finals.
The late Sir Paul Callaghan would have been thrilled to see that this year's Eureka! Awards has attracted a record number of entries.
The Eureka! Trust wants to acknowledge the great contribution teachers make to our programme which (as our Mission Statement says) seeks "to identify and foster young leaders whop, through their knowledge of science, technology, engineering or mathematics, their entrepreneurial vision and persuasive communication skills, will bring about the vision of New Zealand as foreseen by Sir Paul Callaghan."
For the first time, contestants in the Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka! Awards can be selected for the opportunity to take up internships over their summer break.
Immediately following his victory in the 2016 Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka Awards Scots College student Andrew Tang departed for the US to visit Silicon Valley on a Young Enterprise Scheme tour.
When he got back he wrote this article for us to describe his trip and how his Eureka experience had been relevant.
