About the presenter:

Chris Duggan trained as a Biochemist at Massey University and taught secondary school science, biology, and chemistry for 15 years in the Bay of Plenty. Throughout her teaching career, Chris had a growing sense of concern about the lack of science knowledge students had when arriving at high school. When she read an E.R.O. report in 2013 that stated over 70% of NZ's primary and intermediate schools lack an effective science programme, she decided something needed to be done. She left her middle management and teaching role mid-2013 and the rest - as they say - is history.
