What is Hands-On at Otago?

Hands-On at Otago is designed to support and show interested students what researchers do, why they do these things and to encourage talented young New Zealanders to consider further study as a step in their career pathway.

We do this by bringing them to Otago, New Zealand’s oldest and most attractive university.

Otago University has an international reputation for excellence in scientific research and teaching.

When does Hands-On at Otago take place?

aboutHands-On at Otago is held at the University of Otago, Dunedin, during the secondary school summer holidays.

For 2023 the opening session will be on the evening of Sunday January 15, and the programme continues daily from Monday through to Friday.

It closes with a report-back showcase session on the Friday morning, finishing with lunch.
