Measurement Standard Laboratory Tour, Wellington

MSL is taking measurement to the regions with a series of free public events in our main centres for measurement testing laboratories, industry, innovators and the public. We’ll share the latest information and impact the changes to the International System of Units (SI) will have on businesses both here, and around the globe. We will also have some exciting speakers and displays that you should not miss.

Measurement Standards Laboratory is running a national competition to guess how far Julia Ratcliffe can throw the 1- kilogram mass standard compared to her normal 4-kilogram hammer. Along with revealing the results and winner at this event, Julia will give us an overview of her sport and the science behind it.

Come to Callaghan Innovation, 69 Gracefield Road, Lower Hutt to listen to talks throughout the day about how the changes to the SI units will affect your cheese and see the results of New Zealand throwing away the kilogram!
