Local Marine Science opportunity for Te Ātiawa students from 7 -16 November 2018




Local Marine Science opportunity for Te Ātiawa students from 7 to 16 November 2018



(Led by Professor Conrad Pilditch of the School of Science, University of Waikato)



Marlborough Sounds’ research


Conrad (Professor Pilditch) has research plans that will provide for several (2-3) young Maori students to be ‘out in the field with us’ to share in data collection (Nov 7-16). Ideally, these young people would be students (university/high school) with an interest in the marine environment and wanting long term to be future environmental leaders. We would hope (especially if their time was being paid for - see below*) that these students would prepare a short report on their experiences and being willing to share it with their iwi. If there was interest, we could look into developing more science involvement through participating in longer-term research programs.


After discussing how flexible these arrangements might be, Conrad has said:  “For the time we are here, we would be very flexible with any interested Te Ātiawa students, e.g., the full duration (as above), a day, a half-day, or some hours of involvement can be accommodated.”


(*There is a fund available to facilitate iwi participation in research, so, if there was interest, we could fill in a short application for money to cover the costs of engagement/participation activities.)
