Cristy Burne and Denis Knight

Digital Talk

Celebrate National Science Week with the authors of Wednesday Weeks!

In a world of magic, can science save the day?

Cristy Burne has worked as a science communicator for nearly 20 years across six countries. She has been a science circus performer, garbage analyst, museum writer, and atom-smashing reporter at CERN, but her all-time favourite job is working with kids to embrace the intersection between science, technology and creativity.

Denis Knight is a computer programmer who grew up geeking out about the works of JRR Tolkien, Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams. He has also worked as a technical writer, a delivery boy, a tutor, and, for one glorious summer, a tour guide on Rottnest Island. 

These two fabulous geeks have combined their powers to create Wednesday Weeks, a reluctant sorcerer’s apprentice who would rather study science than magic, a book series which asks the question: In a world of magic, can science save the day?
