Presented by ANU College of Science

Did you enjoy Graham Walker's 'Don't try this at home'? Well, Graham's back to help you have some science fun again, in this kid-friendly, live-streamed show!

Science From the Spare Room! is a virtual science event with a difference - an entertaining, scientifically sound, educational and exciting show, brought to you live from Graham's home lab (aka his back room!).

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.

A little about Graham

Dr Graham Walker convenes the Master of Science Communication Outreach program. His research, teaching and engagement focuses on science communication and informal science learning.

His current research and engagement investigates international capacity building and co-design in science communication. 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.
