One of the most topical scientific issues of the 21st Century has to be the antibiotic resistance of microbes. This issue threatens, at its worst, to take our health system back to the brink of the 20th Century. At its best, it is causing a paradigm shift in policy, and thoughts and practises around the application, distribution and cost of antibiotics.As Science educators, we are the banner bearers of change. What we teach, and how we teach it, can expedite vital social change around attitudes to health, and particularly the expectations we place upon our medical practitioners. »

Ian Milne is the celebrated winner of the inaugural NZASE Peter Spratt Medal. The award was presented at the SciCon 2008 Conference at Te Papa, Wellington. Ian was selected in recognition of his dedication to Science education, and the work he did with Peter Spratt. Ten years on, with SciCon 2018 coming up in July, we thought it fitting to reproduce one of Ian’s most recent publications. We would like to thank The Journal of Emergent Science, and Ian, for their kind permission to reproduce the article in its entirety. »
It’s the final call for abstracts for SciCon 2018. »
