Are you ready to be entertained in a kid-friendly, live-streamed science show? Presented by Dr Graham Walker, Don't Try this at home! is a science event with a difference.
Graham helps you find the fun in science with this entertaining, scientifically sound, educational and exciting show - brought to you live from his home lab (aka his garage).
After the show, you can have a go at a variety of family-friendly science experiments! Watch videos made by ANU Master of Science Communication Outreach students demonstrating experiments that are safe for you to do at home.
Whether you replicated the results perfectly or achieved a completely different outcome, we want to hear about it! Show us your efforts in our Science at Home Instagram competition for a chance to win some cool prizes! More information coming soon!
A little about Graham
Graham convenes the Masters of Science Communication Outreach program. His research, teaching and engagement focuses on science communication and informal science learning.

To this end, Graham founded the Science Circus Africa project which has trained 499 staff and reached 73,000 people in 10 African countries. He is currently widening his focus to the Asia Pacific, primarily through the DFAT supported Science Circus Pacific project.
Graham also researches emotional and motivational aspects of science communication, particularly in settings like science centres, science shows and hands-on workshops, and using these methods to engage with social and environmental issues, along with teaching in these areas. He is an avid aficionado of science shows, and has performed shows and delivered training globally.
