Terry Price – Past President
I have been a Science Technician for over 10 years. I am currently the Lab Manager and have been involved in giving workshops, electronic media and technician education for a number of years.
I have been a School Science Technician at John Paul College, Rotorua for almost 20 years. Prior to that I have had experience in varying analytical fields ranging from packaging testing, to industrial laboratories and also in the pharmaceutical industry where my love was microbiological testing. I headed the team that delivered the successful ConSTANZ13 Conference in Rotorua in 2013. I feel honoured to have been elected to the Executive and I look forward to making many positive contributions with a particular focus on making safety systems and regulations, including storage, easily obtainable, easily understood and universal.
I have been a science technician for 7 years at St Patrick’s College.
I have been a technician at 3 schools and am in my 10th year as a technician. I have been on the executive since 2011 serving as Communications officer over that time.
I have worked at Rotorua Boys High School since 1988.
I have been a School Science Technician since 2004, firstly at Papakura High School, and currently at Alfriston College. I’m excited to be a member of the Executive, working with and for you all.
I have a background in Biological Studies and have been working as a Laboratory Manager at Onehunga High School for nearly 10 years. I have the Advocacy portfolio on the Executive which I hope to use as a platform for raising the profile of Science Technicians nationwide.
