Cawthron INSPIRE Festival

Friday 2nd September 2022

Cawthron INSPIRE is an annual festival for primary and intermediate age children that has been running for many years. Students choose any combination of four 1-hour workshops in a range of STEAMS areas. Cast an object in silicone and resin, try your hand at being an engineering geologist, or learn how to talk to spiders! This is just a small selection of the fun and intriguing sessions on offer, which go BEYOND the ordinary to challenge and yes, INSPIRE students. INSPIRE is suitable for all students who love to think dynamically and creatively and sessions are led by experts in their field from Nelson and all around the country. All materials are supplied and the event goes ahead rain or shine.

Proudly brought to you by the Cawthron Institute and Ministry of Inspiration
