About the INSPIRE Festival

The INSPIRE Festival 2017, run by the Ministry of Inspiration, offers two days of challenging lectures, thought-provoking discussions and hands on experiments for Years 5-8. The aim is to develop the connection between classroom theory and some very exciting and ground-breaking real careers which make a difference in our world. The inaugural INSPIRE was at the end of 2012 and massive demand has led to it being hosted annually with over 500 students attending. INSPIRE spreads across the Nelson campus of NMIT with special sessions given by innovative researchers, scientists, professors, artists, and business leaders. The energy and enthusiasm of the students is wonderful and, with their feedback, demonstrates the necessity and benefits of INSPIRE. All attendees will be our future leaders and creative thinkers and they have told us they want more; more challenge, more connections and more opportunities to grow and learn.
