The aim of the Royal Society of New Zealand Wellington Branch  is to publicise science and technology and provide interesting and topical talks for our members and the public.
All our talks are free and the public are invited to attend.

We provide:

  2. Two series of monthly presentation and discussion sessions in Café Scientifique style, one series in Lower Hutt and the other in Wellington.
  3. Assistance with the NIWA Wellington Science & Technology Fair which includes a RSNZ Wellington Branch Special Prize.
  4. This website, in which we detail our activities and the upcoming public lectures and café sessions we are involved with. We also provide a web page for the Mainly Science Book Group .
  5. A quarterly newsletter promoting events relating to or organized by the Branch, for which details are available at the time of printing.
  6. Financial assistance to an electronic email alert service about upcoming seminars and other science-related events in Wellington.
