ILLUMINATING NEW ZEALAND is a nation-wide celebration of light and light-based technologies in our daily lives.From high-speed optical networks to evocative art to energy-efficient lighting, light and light-based technologies inform, connect and illuminate our people, our world and beyond.

Photonics is the science and technology of creating, controlling and using light.

Join us in celebrating Matariki and Te Kōanga with hands-on science experiments for children, exotic and exciting demonstrations by leading New Zealand scientists and “Light Matters” experiment kits to take home and continue your explorations.
