Hands On 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.

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

For 2020 the opening session will be on the evening of Sunday January 12, and the programme continues daily from Monday through to Friday.

Available for students who will be in Year 12 or 13 in 2020. Applications open 22 July and close October 2019.

STAR may be able to assist with the course fee. Travel is at your own expense.
