Dr Graham is in New Zealand for some mid-winter family fun, delivering four entertaining and informative science shows aimed at primary-age children in the Gisborne region, Hawke's Bay and Wellington.

Based at the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science at Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, Graham is a veteran of making science engaging for younger audiences.

He believes that science shows can make people more excited about science, encourage them to keep studying it, or even behave in ways that science argues are good choices, like with tackling climate change.

Appealing particularly to primary school children, all are welcome to attend, however, children under 14 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

These are FREE events but space is limited - please register to guarantee a seat.
