A big thank you to all the sponsors of the local Sanford Science Fair for 2013, along with the Committee and Judges they make this a wonderful event to participate in.
I was lucky enough that my entry “Get a Grip” won the overall prize.  Since winning it has been a very busy time for me as I also was nominated for Realise the Dream and have spent many hours preparing my entry and youtube video.  I was absolutely thrilled to bits last month when I received a letter from the Royal Society of New Zealand letting me know I had been selected for this fantastic event and could not believe that it also included a ceremony at Government House in Wellington.  I depart for Auckland on the 8th of December.
I know what a wonderful opportunity this is for me and obviously it would not have been possible without the sponsorship and support from all the organisations involved.
