Quotes

The winner was Onyekachi Raymond from the Faculty of Science and Engineering, whose presentation was entitled "The Beauty Without the Beast: A Chemical SearchSearch for Beryllium's Partner" . Beryllium is an indispensable but toxic metal used in high-tech devices such as smartphones and computers...
"As you are engaged in this quite logical way of planning and forecasting, you have this beautiful creative thing that comes out and so while you are constructing a story through harakeke or whatever fibres you use as a weaver, a whole other story comes out and it's really abstract, so you create a beautiful kete or a beautiful whariki, and embedded in that whariki is a whole lot of other knowledge - knowledge about the universe, knowledge about atua, knowledge about whanau, knowledge about relationship to whenua" Mr Kereopa says
...competition at this level will do wonders for our international profile, and bring the FLAX project to the attention of a lot more people. "Flax has the potential to revolutionalize language learning on the web, particularly for those who need to improve their professional and academic written English."
"There was an extremely strong field with many excellent contenders which made our task doubly difficult" she says
