Public engagement by scientists enriches and grows a love of science across the many communities that we all belong to. On this page, I feature popular articles and online resources, some of which also reflect co-creation of research with communities. It is a privilege to consider that the research developed has contributed to the creation of knowledge/art installations, from whakairo (carving as an Indigenous expression of knowledge) in Antarctica to ‘whakataukī palisades’ at a major tribal festival, to a catalogue for a Chicago art exhibition (Martyn and Wehi 2017), to a story on kurī in the School Journal.
