Matariki Ki Tua o Kā Whetū: Matariki of Endless Possibilities
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.
