By Te Ao - Māori News

Just weeks ago Professor Rangi Mataamua was awarded the top communication prize at the Prime Minister's Science Awards, for his efforts to engage and communicate with Māori about science.

He says that although there is much interest in the knowledge that he shares about the stars and his research, the challenge ahead is moulding the next generation of Māori scientists.

Te Ao Mārama reporter D'Angelo Martin caught up with Mataamua.
