We are celebrating Ernest Rutherford’s 150th birthday this year by giving away 150 family passes to Otago Museum’s Tūhura Otago Community Trust Science Centre.

Thanks to the generosity of Dodd-Walls Centre, we have been able to create a ballot system that is available for primary and secondary schools to use for fundraising or awards. This will be drawn in three ballots of 50 tickets each.

If you would like to enter your school, please fill out the form below to go into the draw to win five passes for your school. This ballot is for a total of 50 passes and will close on 30 September 2021.
