The Whiria te Tangata Science-Art Competition is a fun way for our teachers, students, and community to prioritise play, exploration and creativity to engage with scientific thinking. 

“Before hard work comes play. Before those who’ve yet to fix on a passion are ready to spend hours a day diligently honing skills, they must goof around, triggering and retriggering interest. … This is also the conclusion of psychologist Benjamin Bloom, who interviewed 120 people who achieved world-class skills in sports, arts, or science—plus their parents, coaches, and teachers. Among Bloom’s important findings is that the development of skill progresses through three different stages, each lasting several years. Interests are discovered and developed in what Bloom called “the early years.” Encouragement during the early years is crucial because beginners are still figuring out whether they want to commit”. - Duckworth, Angela. Grit (p. 127 - 128). Ebury Publishing.
