The New Zealand In­ter­na­tional Science Fes­ti­val

NZ Life & Leisure - - Calendar -

6 to 15 July, Dunedin Dunedin is party cen­tral for the cu­riosi­ties of science as the city rolls out a cache of cut­ting- edge lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional re­searchers, en­gi­neers, sci­en­tists, thinkers and pre­sen­ters – and an agenda of 150 events. The theme is ‘Go Be­yond’ and guests at the bi­en­nial fes­ti­val in­clude young Bri­tish space sys­tems en­gi­neer Sian Cleaver, Aus­tralian science com­mu­ni­ca­tor Dr Gra­ham Walker, lead­ing Maori astronomer Dr Rangi Mata­mua of Tuhoe, Auck­land psy­chol­o­gist Nigel Latta and NAO – a lead­ing hu­manoid ro­bot from China. From the cog­ni­tive science of fake news and the Maori cre­ation and ori­gins of the uni­verse to as­tropho­tog­ra­phy and how to make a wa­ter rocket, it’s game on for science.

Aus­tralian sci­en­tist Dr Gra­ham Walker in ac­tion.
