Lord Robert Winston visiting New Zealand

Lord Robert Winston, a noted science commentator and advocate, presenting shows such as ‘Child of our Time’ and ‘The Human Body’, is in New Zealand from March 9 to 13 for a series of events.

A highlight of the visit was two interactive broadcasts Lord Winston held for Year 7-10 and Year 12-13 students throughout New Zealand and the Pacific on the 13th March.

The focus of the Year 7-10 broadcast was “Puberty: Let’s Talk About it with the Experts”, and the Year 12-13 broadcast: “Reproductive Technologies: An Issue for our time”.

The Lord Winston TALKFEST 2014 took place on Thursday.  It was  broadcast live with a selected student panel and student audience from the Fale Pasifika, the University of Auckland.

The Best Student Bloggers from the Pacific made up the selected panel, and had been identified from the winner of Blog BLAST entries

Lord Winston is patron of Gravida and a Professor of Science and Society and Emeritus Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial College, London.
