University of Canterbury Science Outreach

Year 13 Biology students in the Canterbury region have the opportunity to participate in the 2010 LENScience Senior Biology seminar series. It is a great way for students to extend and reinforce their knowledge in preparation for NCEA Level 3 Biology and/or NZQA NZ Scholarship Biology exams. The seminar and associated workshop material is designed to teach students how to apply knowledge and concepts to new situations.

To encourage as many schools and students as possible to participate, University of Canterbury Outreach will run each seminar at a UC venue.

This will provide a great environment for students to listen and share ideas and participate in discussions around the seminar topics. In addition refreshments will be provided!

If you have students interested in attending the LENScience Senior Biology Seminars at the University of Canterbury please register by contacting
