Y12-13 students with a passion for science and technology are selected to work together on solving some of the biggest issues facing the world
We are looking for emerging thinkers who will be tomorrow’s doers – the people who will be tasked with solving some of the biggest issues facing the world.
If chosen, we’ll help you articulate your ideas and build your confidence, so you can achieve your true potential.
This unique opportunity will see New Zealand’s most promising young students come together to seek answers to some of the world’s biggest problems, supported and guided by our mentors and world-class science leaders. Whether we make baby steps or giant leaps, we’ll do it together and learn from each other.
Do you want to join us? Do you want to realise your potential? Find out if you are eligible for Powering Potential. Places are strictly limited.

Powering Potential takes place in Wellington around mid December each year. The event will take place from Monday 11 December and participants will fly back home on Thursday morning 14 December. Participants may choose to arrive earlier or stay later but any extra accommodation, or costs over and above of what would normally be provided would need to be paid by the student.
It goes without saying that the power of curiosity and questioning and the ability to answer our own questions are crucial skills, both in the sciences and in life in general.
Powering Potential is now open to nominations from eligible applicants.
