2:10 - Online Stargazing - Terence Galuszka - A lifestyle block in rural Masterton is the setting for a new observatory where it is hoped generations of students will learn how to follow the stars. The 'Kea' Observatory at Stronvar, is the brain-child of local star gazer Terence Galuszka who estimates it'll take about six months to construct, and cost upwards of a hundred thousand dollars to fit out fully. But it'll be time and money well spent he says, if it brings a world-class star dome to the bottom of the North Island.
Galactic Kiwi is an online resource for young people interested in astronomy administered by Terence.
2:20 Outward Bound Cutter - Bruce Cardwell - It's been a rite of passage for thousands of young New Zealanders for 51 years. Outward Bound is the outdoor education course that teaches teamwork, leadership, and resilience to young people all over the world,since it was first founded in Wales in 1941.
The name: 'Outward Bound' refers to the moment when a ship leaves the pier, and that's particularly apt for New Zealand , because learning how to handle a vessel is central to the Outward Bound experience here.
The cutters of Outward Bound have been sailing the Marlborough Sounds for over half a century, and the organisation has just christened a brand new boat, all the better for the latest generation of bounders to get their sea legs on.
