    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.
