Exciting options at Massey Albany’s Open Day

From robots to 3D printing, experiencing New Zealand’s only university Trading Room — it’s all on offer at your local university – and there’s a chance to see what the new student accommodation village will look like.

Open Days are being held on all three Massey campuses, with the first one at Manawatū on August 6, followed by Albany - August 16, and Wellington - August 29. The Albany event runs from 10-3 pm.

ROBOTS, 3D PRINTERS, TRADING ROOM
Presentations, displays, hands-on workshops and demonstrations are designed to highlight the diverse range of degrees and papers available – from Aviation to Zoology. A shuttle bus operating at the main campus runs to the Albany Village and Oteha Rohe campuses. 3D printers, robots, sport science labs, the speech and language therapy clinic, the nursing suite, and the Trading Room are just a few of the highlights.

UNDERSTANDING THE ELECTION: 2-3 PM
The politics programme features a Q&A session on understanding the general election, and the value of a politics degree.

CAREERS FOR THE 21st CENTURY
Two distinguished College leaders will outline careers in health and humanities for the 21st Century.

TOURS, INFORMATION, SUPPORT SERVICES
Campus tours feature labs, libraries and lecture spaces that students will inhabit, and there’s a chance to sample campus services including cafés, theatre spaces and student learning support services. In addition, information sessions for distance learners, international students and Maori and Pasifika support networks will be run, as well as sessions on cultural and sporting activities, and student welfare.

You can also sign up for two weeks free trial membership at the gym on Open Day.

Scoop Review Of Books: Excerpt - Ice Bear: The Cultural History Of An Arctic Icon

“During the last decade the image of the polar bear has moved in the public imagination from being an icon of strength, independence and survival in one of the most climatically extreme of world environments, to that of fragility, vulnerability and more generally of a global environmental crisis.” More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs.
