Matariki Ki Tua o Kā Whetū: Matariki of Endless Possibilities
Children | Tweens

Come to a family-friendly science show celebrating Matariki and mātauranga Māori!

In the hours before the Matariki star cluster rises, a scientist and his family gather in their garden to celebrate the Māori New Year. While they wait for the sun to rise, they prepare a hāngī, share stories of their tīpuna, and explore the science of the world around them. How will the stars bring this whānau closer together?

Matariki Ki Tua o Kā Whetū is a new science show written by Isaac Martyn and directed by Sahara Pohatu-Trow, with the support of the University of Otago Physics outreach team.

Produced with support from the Creative Communities Scheme from Creative New Zealand.
