Building a new science audience - partnering with The Spinoff

Page display from The SpinoffWe have partnered with The Spinoff online magazine and news site to create a science page, which features lively-written science stories.

The partnership provides a public platform for dozens of articles on science each year, on subject areas ranging from climate change to women in science, to nanotechnology and genetic modification.

The Spinoff audience is skewed towards a younger demographic and our partnership allows us to share science discoveries and knowledge with this group. The accessible and often long-form articles cover subjects not commonly understood by New Zealanders, such as hi-tech materials science and innovation.

The partnership also means we gain meaningful coverage of important discussions at events, such as our one-day symposium ‘Materialise: a sustainable future’, in October 2018.

The Spinoff was launched back in 2014 and is New Zealand’s fastest growing online media brand producing content that’s smart, funny and provocative. It has broken some of the country’s biggest stories, changed the way journalism works on the internet, and provided a fresh voice on what New Zealand could or should look like.
